WHY SHOULD I SIGN MY YOUNG CHILD UP FOR SIGN LANGUAGE CLASSES?
Have you ever tried to sing "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" without the hand motions? It just doesn't feel right! Actions help children remember words to a song or a finger play because there is muscle memory involved. Young children love movement and actions. Sign language caters to both. Research shows that children find sign language fun and children retain what they learn through fun, engaging activities. So come join us on Tuesdays, Sept. 15 and 22 @ 10:30. Suggested ages 2-6 years. Please sign up at the front desk or call 412-655-2424.

EVERYWHERE YOU TURN IT IS "BACK TO SCHOOL"



and Pleasant Hills Library is no exception! So if you have a young child headed "back to school" come check out our "back to school" shelf in the children's department.

Here's a little taste of what we have to offer:

So when his class visits the aquarium.............



Corneluius P. Mud, ARE YOU READY FOR SCHOOL? by Barney Saltzberg
It's time for school. Is Cornelius P. Mud up? Is that plucky little pig ready for school?

Miss Mingo and the Fire Drill by Jamie Harper
It's Fire Safety Week in Miss Mingo's room.
This isn't your typical classroom, and Miss
Mingo isn't your average teacher!

The Hair of Zoe Fleefenbacher Goes to School by Laurie Halse Anderson
