Event Details

Are you trying to raise caring, empathetic kids but think you could use some reinforcement? Do you want to have “big ideas” conversations with your little humans but aren’t sure where to start? The Guilford Free Library is here to help. Each month we explore a different social-emotional topic through picture books, discussion, and activities which are appropriate and accessible to young children. Caregivers go home with a list of further resources and the confidence to continue teaching empathy. Led by children’s librarians and occasionally guest speakers. To keep discussion focused and comfortable, class size will be limited and registration will be required for each individual meeting.

In May, we will be discussing caring for our animal neighbors.  We will read picture books about some of the animals we can see in our backyards and the things we can do to make the environment more healthy for them.  We will be painting bird houses to take home and encourage birds to live in our yards.  All registered participants who attend will receive a free children’s book on helping animals.
