CG – Noni’s Nook Story Time

Calhoun-Gordon County Library presents Noni’s Nook Story Time: Thursdays in November at 10:30 a.m.

Join us for stories and activities for children from three – five years. November is Picture Book Month, and this is what Jerry Pinkney has to say: “the picture book is often a child’s first experience of looking at and reading art. Children learn to read pictures before they learn to sound out words or read full sentences, and for the very young, the partnership between pictures and text helps them take in and find pleasure in a narrative. It also stimulates a child’s desire to read words, and in this way, deciphering and understanding art becomes a small victory on the path to becoming a reader.” – Why Picture Books are Important by Jerry Pinkney.
