Sketch Noting (3:57) Sometimes written off as another form of doodling, Sketchnoting is actually a valuable form of note taking and communication. Tanny McGregor is a teacher, reader, and writer. Her book on Sketchnoting, Ink and Ideas, explains how to use it in all walks of life. Storytime (17:21) 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 books or poetry. All month we will be reading segments from Charles Dickens' Christmas classic, A Christmas Carol. This week, get a glimpse into young Ebenezer Scrooge with the Ghost of Christmas Past. Math and Kids (20:28) How can we help our children to accept the challenge of math and excel in it? Alisa Belliston, Ph.D., is a previous elementary mathematics teacher, and current Mathematics Professor here at BYU. She shares ideas of how to introduce math to our children. Even at a very early age. Author Lauren Wolk (38:04) We love speaking to authors here at Worlds Awaiting. Recently Meagan Andrus, of the Worlds Awaiting team, had the privilege of sitting down with Lauren Wolk at a symposium for young readers. Lauren is a poet, artist, and award winning author of Wolf Hollow. Today she talks about her journey to becoming an author and how she comes up with the ideas for her books. Book Reviews (50:11) Today we are around the Librarians' Table with Pre-service teacher Julie Anderson and local librarian Jess Verzelo. The Holidays mean something different to everyone and this week part of the world is celebrating Hanukkah. In honor of this holiday we will offer a couple book reviews with Oskar and the Eight Blessings by Richard Simon & Tanya R. Simon and Runaway Driedel by Lesléa Newman.
