Hot Jazz for Cool Kids!

Children and families are invited to this outstanding series of free performances by Indy’s leading jazz musicians. They are a great way to share jazz music with children that will be fun for everyone! These hour-long programs are presented by the Learning Curve at Central Library in partnership with The Indianapolis Jazz Foundation and Indy Jazz Fest. This series is made possible by Friends of the Library through gifts to The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation. This program will feature a performance by the Allen Turk Burke Quintet. Allen’s talent on keyboard and vocals and skill as a music director has been tapped by celebrated performers such as the Spinners, Patti LaBelle and Marvin Gaye. Attendees will be enchanted by Allen’s interpretation of jazz and R&B classics.

We had a BLAST at Story Time on Friday! The theme was Super Kids and we read stories and sang songs and rhymes about being a super hero!

The books we read were:

Kiki’s Blankie by Janie Bynum

Mighty Max! by Harriet Ziefert

Superhero ABC by Bob McLeod

and

Baron Von Baddie and the Ice Ray Incident by George McClements

For the activitie all the kiddos made super hero masks and I brought dress ups and props for them to play pretend! Here’s a picture of two of our brave heroines sporting capes and a shield. Not pictured is a dumbbell I made out of paper towel rolls and paper plates for the kids to test their super strength!
