Parent’s Corner: Get Your Game On!

It’s summer! The kids are out of school! Time to keep them entertained when they’ve had enough of sprinklers, pool slides, cotton candy, and ferris wheels. There are oodles of games and fun things to do, and AADL’s has some books with a few ideas.

The Downtown library has a shelf in the Youth Department known as the Parent Shelf. On this shelf you’ll find a variety of parent-child related books on a multitude of topics- including everything from language to tantrums to potty training to homework. These books are available for checkout, and can be found in the catalog when searching “parent shelf,” if you’d like to have one sent to a branch of your choice. For some books on games and play, check these out:

Carschooling: over 350 entertaining games & activities to turn travel time into learning time

500 five minute games: quick and easy activities for 3-6 year olds

101 movement games for children: fun and learning with playful moving

The complete book of activities, games, stories, props, recipes, and dances

For additional titles, see here and here for a longer list. And speaking of games, there's always AADL's Summer Game to keep you busy!
