Updated for summer: Early Bird Learning videos: A virtual tutorial for babies, toddlers & preschoolers

By Children’s Librarian Shelley Harris

Summer is the perfect time for tons of outdoor play! We’ve compiled some of our favorite songs, activities, and rhymes to give you some great ways to explore nature and enjoy the weather, all while giving your kids a literacy boost.

Caregivers and parents, we’ve heard from you that you love seasonal materials, so we’re offering you something new: a collection of Early Bird Learner videos focused on winter, spring, spring, summer, and fall, with songs, science and nature activities, science, and book recommendations. We just created the summer one, so press the play button to get started!

Speaking of Early Bird Learners, did you know that we’ve created more than 300 videos since March 2020?! That’s an overwhelming number of videos to scroll through to find what you’re looking for! So, we’re looking at new, more user-friendly ways to organize videos so you can find the topics you need when you need them. 

More collections will be coming, but right now, our new collections are:

  • Learning about ourselves and others
  • Fun and learning in all four seasons
  • Virtual field trips
  • Especially for babies and toddlers

What kinds of video topics do you want to find most easily? Email me at shelleyh@oppl.org, and I’ll build that collection for you.
