Favorite Books Made for Singing

March is Sing With Your Child Month! Lullabies, songs, and rhymes help prepare children for language and reading skills, and are an important part of early literacy. So help us celebrate by singing to your child with some of our favorite picture books that are easily turned into songs.

Want some help? Join us this Saturday, March 23rd at 10:30 a.m. in the children's programming room for our Community Leaders Are Readers series, where an Anacostia community leader will be reading and singing I Ain't Gonna Paint No More followed by a painting craft. Great fun for children ages 2-8. Families welcome!
