Monday, January 27, 2014 will be the 15th annual Preschool Information Night held at Northwood Elementary School from 7:00 - 8:30 PM. (If that date is snowed out, the event will take place on Monday, February 3, 2014.) Parents will have the opportunity to talk to representatives from state licensed area preschools, child care facilities and kindergartens. Also debuting that night will be the 2014 Royal Oak Area Preschool and Child Care Directory which gives information on nearly 50 area facilities that provide services for children ages six and under.
One-State, One-Children’s Book for 2013 is Woolbur written by Leslie Helakoski and illustrated by Lee Harper. Michigan Reads!, presented by the Library of Michigan features a book that promotes early childhood literacy. It encourages family bonding through reading. This year’s book selection features Woolbur, a very active lamb who finds original ways to accomplish everyday tasks. The story, the language, the joyfulness of Woolbur’s actions makes Woolbur a “go to” book for both children and older readers as they go about their own activities. Woolbur will be featured during our preschool story times during a week in September. A copy of Woolbur will be available to read at the library during September, so take a few moments to pause and share it with your children or grandchildren.
