“Mother Goose on the Loose”, Friday, October 31, 11am

Join the happy circle with Kay Lyons at a lap-sit story hour for children age 3 and under with a grown-up every Friday morning at the Greenfield Public Library.  Kay reads books, leads the group in hand rhymes, and uses puppets to teach animal sounds and other concepts new to the very young.  Children and grown-ups shake rattles, tap rhythm sticks, wave colored scarves, ring bells, and do knee bounces to simple sing-along tunes that everybody learns together.  Go on the loose with Mother Goose! It’s so much fun!  Each session is 45 minutes, with half an hour of structured activity and about fifteen minutes of visiting time.  No sign-up is required, and the program is free of charge thanks to the generosity of the Friends of Greenfield Public Library.
