Musical Play (4:01) Children play all the time. Anything from an empty cardboard box to a bouncy ball can become a fascinating toy to a little child. It’s through this play that children develop skills and learn about the world around them. Today we have Brittany May in the studio, a professor here at BYU who specializes in music education. Storytime (17:10) 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 "Anne of Green Gables" by L.M. Montgomery. YA Books (20:59) There are many genres and types of books within the world of literature. Books can span from fantasy to nonfiction, or long novels to picture books. Often authors stay in one area, for example only writing picture books, or staying within the realm of science fiction. But sometimes authors explore writing multiple types of books. Today Rachel has on the phone Martha Brockenrough, an author of biographies, young adult novels, and even picture books. Attention Deficit Disorder (35:04) Life in the classroom can be a difficult adjustment for any child, but especially when the needs of the child aren’t met or understood. Many children suffer from attention deficit disorders, but with so many different types, it can be difficult to recognize, understand, or diagnose. Rachel is in the studio with Annette Lyon, an author who has some experience with attention deficit disorders. Librarians' Table (47:40) Today we are around the librarians' table with Andrew and Emily Garrett, students librarians at BYU. They are here to chat about their research on the genre of children's historical fiction.
