    Just listened to the webinar on engaging families and thought this was perfectly aligned with the authors' recommendations so I wanted to share. I work at a children's museum - Discovery Center at Murfree Spring in Murfreesboro Tennessee. We have a site that includes videos, an activity blog, and most connected to today's presentation, a live Facebook (then on Youtube) program. Our early childhood literacy and science program is called SPARK Live and is on Tuesday mornings at 9:00 am CDT. I read books and engage early learners and their grownups in activities during and post the 10-20 minute video. Check out our videos at . So far we have: 
    1. The excitement of exploring and noticing using Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury.
    2. Thinking about evidence of growth using Do You Know Which Ones Will Grow? by Susan A. Shea and illustrated by Tom Slaughter
    3. Exploring circles around us using Round by Joyce Sidman, & illustrated by Taeeun Yoo
    4. Noticing, comparing and creating with seeds and seed pods using A Seed is Sleepy by Dianna Hutts Aston & illustrated by Sylvia Long
    5. Thinking about collecting and grouping using Sort it Out by Barbara Mariconda & illustrated by Sherry Rogers.

    I hope you will join us live or after. Stay healthy and staff...Best, Dale
