Our Author Visit at Baptist Hospital Early Learning Center – Languages4kidz
This Summer I was invited to visit Baptist Hospital Early Learning Center as an author of children’s books. The Center was extremely organized, and clearly my visit was a big deal to everyone there.
I first visited the younger kids’ classes (infant-toddlers) and sang to them some songs. Then, I was escorted by the Director and Coordinator of the Program to 3 of their older classes (4-6 year olds). I read several of my books to them in English and Spanish and we sang some songs related to the readings. The children were very attentive and happy and joined in as I read and sang.
After carrying out these fun activities I was invited to have lunch with some of the Center’s staff. Before leaving the Center I donated some of my books to their class libraries and I was given beautiful presents and hand written thank you notes that made me feel very special.
I had a wonderful time and it was a joy to see the children and their teachers engaged and enthusiastically enjoying the activities I carried out.
