Musical Fun With Angie Donkin

On June 6th, we had a delightful music performance by Angie Donkin for infants, toddlers and their families. She played guitar and ukulele and sang. She used puppets, props, even a nonfiction book, to support her songs. Literally every moment of the show is music. Angie sings the entire time, even when she’s asking parents to turn off their cell phones–and the thing she wants parents to take away from her shows is how important it is to sing to your children. You don’t have to be an amazing singer. Your babies love your voice and respond to it. They are not judging. They are soaking it all in.

Here are some of the photos we took of Angie and the little kids having a wonderful time!

I'm a youth services librarian currently working at the Lamanda Park Branch Library while Central Library is closed for seismic repairs. I purchase juvenile fiction for grades 2-8, and some foreign languages. I do a lot of programs with school-age kids, including 3 regular book clubs (Windows and Mirrors, Read Around the World, and Lucha Libros), as well as writing workshops and STEAM/science programs. I also Infant/Toddler Storytimes and Preschool Storytimes, and outreach to local area preschools. I love what I do, working with kids of all ages to inspire them to learn and use their curiosity and imaginations. Outside of my work at the library, I am also the author of a book on creative writing activities for kids.
