Sing and dance w/ Bari!

Singing and dancing with your children is filled with giggling, making silly faces, and twirling about. Did you know that this special time is good for your children's development and can also make them smarter?

Picks for You


In an increasingly globalized world, it's important to teach our kids to be more than tolerant of differences, and to accept and embrace what makes each of us unique. Luckily for us, we have access to hundreds of cultural avenues to explore right outside our doorsteps, whether it be perusing exhibits or trying new and different cuisines. You can also teach your kids about celebrating diversity with these four children's books.
