Babies in the Library!

Babies in the Library!

Eclectic library reading programs for young children have blossomed across the nation over the last decade, encouraging in toddlers a fondness for the library and an excitement for the caches of books to be found there. Likewise, in an effort to promote a love of language in babies as young as three months old, scores of early childhood initiatives are beginning to sprout as well. Aimed at children's librarians and other professionals who work with very young children, this librarian-tested sourcebook provides complete programs that spotlight the value and necessity of singing, speaking, and reading to babies in their earliest months. Ten ready-to-use programs are divided for their intended audience: five for 'pre-walkers' and five for walkers. Marino combines rhymes involving body movement, songs, fingerplays, circle games, and books in ways that teach interaction skills with young children and help to enrich their language and enhance their listening capabilities. Several of the rhymes are repeated in a take-home section to aid librarians and others in charge of children's programs to present parents and caregivers with the tools they need to use rhymes and activities whenever and wherever they want. A helpful bibliography lists the best picture books, programming books, rhyme collections, and numerous recordings that are suitable for very young children. The captivating activities in Babies in the Library! will delight the youngest library users while making it easy for librarians to create programs for this important and growing segment of the library population.

Can You Spin this Dreidel for Me?

Can You Spin this Dreidel for Me?

The dreidel is one of the best known symbols of Chanukah. A four-sided top with a Hebrew letter on each side, the dreidel is used to play a fun Chanukah game of chance.
The letters on the dreidel, Nun, Gimmel, Hey and Shin, stand for the Nes Gadol Haya Sham, which means A Great Miracle Happened There. In Israel,where the story of Chanukah took place, the letters on the dreidel are Nun, Gimmel, Hey and Peh, which stand for A Great Miracle Happened Here (Po, in Hebrew). Owa days we have mostly dreidles " Made in China", with NO sides or letters, as you can see.

To play the game of dreidel, two to four players each get a handful of pennies or chocolate money called gelt. The youngest players spins the dreidel and calls for a letter, depending on what letter the top lands on, he or she will win.
The dreidel -- or Sivivon in Hebrew, from the verb to spin -- continues to be passed around the circle until one player has won everyone's coins. The word dreidel comes from a Yiddish word meaning to turn.

According to some historians, Jews first played with a spinning top during the rule of the Greek King Antiochus'. In Judea, Antiochus had outlawed Jewish worship, so the Jews would use a game with the spinning top as a ruse to conceal that they were secretly studying Torah.

Dreidels can be made out of just about anything -- from wood, plastic or polymer to precious metals (although perhaps you shouldn't let your kids play with the solid gold dreidel!)



"My nephew follows my invisible words
As they float around us
Settling on the half functional plastic objects from the toy box
I think this one’s a gun or part of a gun
But to my nephew
It’s a water hose
In fact everything is a water hose today
And we spend an hour fighting invisible fires
Amongst the echoes of my invisible words that
Come out of his two year old mouth.

But when it’s story time
I substitute the word biscuit for every noun
He squeals and giggles to correct me
-she’s riding on her…… BISCUIT! -
-NO! it’s a BIKE! -
The game continues again, read it again, read it again
I am delighted to play with invisible words
Wondering whether such joy will be evident
When he can read
But for now our savouring of alternative nouns
Lays diamonds in our path
Of random shaped fire hoses
And hard cardboard books

When he’s older will he remember
The biscuit game, the fire fighting
The giggles and squeals of indulgent invisible time
Or will it fade away to reappear
Only when he has a tiny echo of his own invisible words
Sitting amongst other miscellaneous objects
On a different living room floor
One Biscuit afternoon."

---J.L. Nash
