Sing-along @ your library

If you were like me growing up, sing-a-long time with the family was probably equal parts Raffi and the oldies station your parents listened to in the car. While perhaps not always age appropriate (my favorite was Three Dog Night’s "Joy to the World"), these are songs and memories that have stuck with me to this day.

March is Sing with Your Child Month, a time to celebrate the fun of families singing, dancing, and making music together. Singing together is a great way to connect with your kids without spending a lot of money, especially when you use the resources at your library.
