Columbus: Special Musical Storytime!
Join us at Book Culture on Columbus on Saturday, September 7th at 11am for a special musical storytime, Songs for Littles in Concert.
Sing along to your favorite songs and learn about the wonderful world of music at "Songs for Littles in Concert." Rachel and Jules will perform catchy original songs, children's favorites like "Baby Shark," and favorites for the adults like "Shake it Up, Baby." Songs for Littles uses these songs as a springboard to introduce kids to musical concepts like steady beat, dynamics, and tempo! Together they'll explore instruments such as the guitar, ukulele, trombone and flute. Two puppets, Sam and Herbie, will join the concert to learn about the instrument of the day and the musical symbol of the day. Children are encouraged to sing, move to the music, and explore the instruments.
