The Otterbein Public Library is excited to announce that we are an official “Mother Goose on the Loose,” storytime facility. Every Tuesday morning from 10:30am-11am (The half hour before the library opens). This thirty-minute nursery rhyme program is for children ages birth to three years. Mother Goose is unique because it is based on the Barbara-Cass Beggs’ “Listen, Like, Learn” method. It encourages the healthy development of the ‘whole child.’ During the half hour children will gain skills that help them learn how to read and connects them with books and illustrations in a joyful way. Children have fun while learning socialization skills such as taking turns and showing appreciation to others. The rhymes also aid in speech development and motor coordination.
