Importance of Phonics (3:09) Language is a building block of literacy, and phonics are an important element of it. English is much maligned language with many rules and exceptions to those rules, and it has roots in many other languages. We’re on the phone today with phonics expert Elfrieda Hiebert.  Storytime (14:36) 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 reading of "Treasure Island" by Robert Louis Stevenson.  Statistics Education (36:42) Statistics are all around us. Often we can’t go for a few days without encountering them in one form or another. Today Rachel has BYU Professor Shannon Tass in studio to discuss the importance of statistics.  Librarian's Table (48:07) Today we are around the Librarians' Table with Janice, Janet and Myrna, music librarians. Today they discuss with Rachel about the importance of singing along.
