Dr. Seuss (3:30) Theodor Geisel was born on this day in 1904. But most people would know him by his Pen name, Dr. Seuss. Today is his birthday, and National Read Across America Day. I’ve got Professor Roxanne Owens on the phone with me. She is a professor of elementary reading at DePaul University. Storytime (15:55) 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 "Bedtime in the Swamp" by Kristyn Crow. Picture Books (20:24) Picture books beautifully blend the two parts of their title: Pictures or images, and text in book form. But how does an illustrator put the two together? Illustrator Bethanne Andersen in the studio with Rachel today to answer tell us how it's done. Rhyming (34:58) One of the easiest ways to engage young children is with rhymes and poetry. Today Rachel has her brother, Tim Wadham in the studio. He is also an author and librarian. Family History (46:53) Today we are around the Librarians' Table with Joe Everett and Marissa Bischoff, family history librarians here at BYU. They discuss with Rachel the importance of creating a family narrative.
