“Are you quite polite?: silly dilly manners songs » by Alan Katz and David Catrow

Are you quite polite

“This fourth entry by Katz and Catrow features 14 selections about manners set to familiar tunes. For the most part, the music and words are an easy fit, although a few, such as Writing Thank-Yous to the tune of Alouette, might require some rehearsal. The verses scan well, with only the occasional resort to invention when no rhyme presents itself (Then there is Ingrid,/Who did a bad thingrid). There are entries on lateness, table manners, sneezing, nose picking, and being quiet in the library, sung to Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. Done in watercolors, colored pencil, and ink, the cartoon artwork is appropriately energetic and chaotic, amplifying the humor in the situations.”

Readers Theater at the Library February Session

New activity at the library to learn and have fun at the same time using dramatic reading of scripts based on children’s stories. Kids will hear the story, do some drama exercises, and practice reading the scripts with intonation and expression.

This activity is for 9 to 12 years-old (4º-6º Primaria) with a high-intermediate or advance English level. It will be held one Friday per month at 18:00, starting on October and finishing in June.

Readers’ Theater will be led by Chloe and Christine, two teachers from the International Institute English program.

The activity forms part of the library services for library members. They will need to show their library card and send an e-mail to confirming their participation in the activity any time from the first day of the month and up to the week of the Readers Theater session.

Non-members who want to participate have a symbolic associated cost of 3€ per child for each session. The tickets can be obtained at the library check-out desk the same week of the session up until 15 minutes before the beginning of the activity.

I like me

High on energy and imagination, this ode to self-esteem encourages kids to appreciate everything about themselves–inside and out. Messy hair? Beaver breath? So what! Here’s a little girl who knows what really matters.

(Llena de energía e imaginación esta oda a la autoestima anima a los niños a apreciar todo lo que tiene que ver con ellos, por dentro y por fuera. ¿Pelo encrespado? ¿mal aliento? ¡Y qué más da! Aqui tenemos una niña que sabe lo que verdaderamente importa.)
