READ Dogs (3:46) It’s hard to imagine a world without animals. What some people don’t realize though, is the potential for animals to help our kids learn, and maybe in ways you don’t expect. Today, Rachel talks with Kathy Klotz, the executive director for the READ Dogs program. Storytime (17:31) 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 have a book review of "The Mysterious Benedict Society" by Trenton Lee Stewart. Science Teaching (22:09) Some subjects are certainly easier to grasp than others for our children. However, that varies from child to child. Sometimes the difference between our children excelling in a subject or not depends on having the right teacher. We’re in studio today with Duane Merrell a science professor here at BYU who teaches up and coming teachers how to teach. Writing (37:42) Picture books are important windows into the world for children. The inspiration for them can come from anywhere. Today, we had Jessica talk with Laura Vaccaro Seeger, an author and illustrator of children’s books about her writing process. Practicing Music (49:26) Today we are around the Librarians' Table with Janice Bunker, Janet Bradford, and Myrna Layton to talk about the importance of practicing musical instruments.
