Teaching with Pizzazz (3:24) Have you ever wondered what type of messages we send our kids every day? How our interactions, positive or negative, impact their young lives? We have Mary Bigler, a professor in the department of Teacher Education at Eastern Michigan University on the phone today to approach these important questions.   Storytime (15:28) Libraries are known for their storytimes and we are too. Each week at around 15 minutes past the hour, tune in to hear book reviews or live readings of picture books or poetry. Today we had a few local children reading poetry by Janet Wong.  Counting (17:39) When we send our children into the world of education, it can be a little daunting and many questions arise. How much should they know before kindergarten? What needs to be taught at home? We’re in studio with Alisa Belliston today to talk about helping our young children with mathematical concepts before and during early education. She is a previous elementary mathematics teacher, and current Mathematics Professor here at BYU. Author Answers (34:11) We all have that one childhood book that’s been worn from reading it over and over again. Imagine what an absolute thrill it would be for a child or even a grown adult to meet the author of that precious book. We have a favorite author of Rachel's, Kate DiCamillo on the phone today to answer a few questions from Rachel's students. She is the acclaimed author of “Because of Winn-Dixie” and “The Tale of Despereaux”. Family History (47:03) Today Rachel is around the Librarians' Table with Joe and Marissa, librarians from BYU. They discuss how to get children more interested in family history.
