The Early Learning Express is celebrating the uniqueness of each individual as its February theme.
“It’s Okay to be Different” by Todd Parr, sends the messageof acceptance in others and confidence in one’s self through simple statements – It’s okay to need some help… It’s okay to finish last… It’s okay to wear glasses… – and bold, colorful illustrations.
To illustrate this idea in another way, we are also reading “You and Me” by Geneviéve Côté. This charming little book depicts two friends, Piggie and Bunny, who try to become more like the other one – “I wish I were just like you.” As each tries to acquire the traits of the other, it becomes quite obvious that trying to be someone else is just silly. In the end, they discover that “I am me and you are you … that’s why we love each other, me and you!”
We end this storytime by joining voices in “This Little Light of Mine,” a song encouraging each of us to be the best person we can be by spreading our unique love lights wherever our paths lead us.
The Early Learning Express will be taking a break from visits from February 20 – February 24 for vacation week.
