We have been busy in the past few
months! We have recently added a new
literacy kit: Panda. It includes two panda
puppets and many books that feature (or
are about) panda bears. These books are
a variety of types to appeal to all age
groups. We have plans to make a “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom”
Literacy kit soon. We have also upgraded many of the toys in our
discovery bags for newer or more interesting toys. We are always
open to suggestions; it is YOUR library after all. Please let us know
of your interests or requests.

Fun With Food
Food Fun Courtesy of:
http://www.lilsnappers.com/healthy-recipes-for-kids/citrus/creepy-crawler-fun-fruit/
These not-so-creepy creatures are a fun and easy way to
get fruit to the table…even if it crawls there on its own!
Simple cuts of tangerines easily transform into legs and
bodies; and end cuts of apple or pear into knobby heads,
making snack time eerily fun! (continued on next page)
preparation time: 10 minutes
servings: Makes 2 “crawlers”
CCRC is a program of the Community Service Council, a United Way Member Agency. Funding is also
provided by the Oklahoma Child Care Resource and Referral Association.

Fun With Food (continued)
Ingredients
3 Sunkist® Lil Snappers citrus (cara cara, navel or moro suggested), divided
1 Stemilt Lil Snappers apple or pear
2 blueberries (or garnish of choice), for eyes
Instructions
Slice one citrus fruit in half crosswise and lay each half flesh-side down on serving platter/board, to
create “bodies” of crawlers. Slice remaining two citrus fruits
into cartwheel halves* and position 8 halves, rounded
peel-edge up, around “body” of each crawler to form “legs.”
Slice off stem end of apple or pear, approximately 1” from
stem end; then halve lengthwise to produce two “heads.”
Position each “head” against body of crawler, flesh side
down; secure with a toothpick, if desired. Attach blueberry
eyes with toothpicks.
Reserve unused fruit for additional snacking. * Turn unpeeled
fruit on its side and cut a thin slice from both ends; discard
ends. Then slice fruit crosswise into approximate 3/8”
wheels. Slice wheels into halves.

The Amazing Infant Brain
Infants are born wired to use all of their senses. The experiences they have
in early infancy and throughout their childhood help to develop these senses.
Here are some amazing facts about infants’ senses. Because touch is so
crucial, the brain can process tactile sensations by the fourth month of
gestation. At birth, this sense is so developed that the infant will have a
preference of soft over rough textures. Sight is the slowest sense to
develop. At first the world is fuzzy, by 3 months though, an infant can follow
moving objects. Babies have an acute sense of taste that first develops around seven weeks’
gestation. The specific tastes that child likes is influenced by what the mother eats while pregnant.
By 28 weeks gestation a baby can perceive loud noises.
Newborns prefer their mothers’ voices and they have the
ability to perceive every phoneme in every language. This
ability is lost within the first year. The sense of smell also
appears to develop in the womb. Babies will show a
preference for their mothers scents over others.
Babies brains are amazing! Think about how you can help
with making those neural connections with the babies in your
care.
Resource-Winning Ways-Understanding Infants by Gigi Schweikert
Environmental Print “I Spy”
Environmental print is all around us. It is made up of all the letters, words and symbols that children
see every day. It is the printed words and signs children encounter as they play, take a walk, ride in
the car and go to their favorite restaurant. Environmental print is often the first “reading” a child
does. I’ve known children that could recognize McDonald’s golden arches before they could talk!
These children made the connection between a symbol, McDonald’s logo, and a favorite food. In
much the same way children learn that letters form words and those words have meaning. You can
increase print awareness and beginning reading skills in the children you work with by creating an
Environmental Print “I Spy” game.
Ask the children to bring in environmental print that they have at home such as newspaper ads,
food labels, empty cereal boxes and business fliers. Glue the items to a large piece of poster
board. Challenge the children to fill the poster board with environmental print.
When the board is full try these activities:




Say a letter of the alphabet and ask the children to see how many times
that letter appears on your “I Spy” board.
Ask the children to find words on the board that begin with a chosen letter.
Mention a product by name and challenge children to find the item on the
board.
Give each child a paper towel tube to look through as they identify letters.

The Dangers of Orbeez
Orbeez are small polymer beads. They're
colorful and alluring, but Consumer Reports
say they are a potential safety hazard. The
product looks a lot like candy and children
may ingest them.
While the company claims they are non-toxic,
the problem with these small balls is that they
can expand enough in a few hours to block
the intestines or airway of a small child who
accidentally ingests them. The front of the
package says they may cause a choking
hazard for children under the age of three but
the back of the package says that this toy is
not suitable for children under the age of five.
In addition, if children put them in their nose or ear they could expand and become soft, breaking
apart into small pieces when attempting to remove them, making it difficult to get all the pieces. The
Consumer Product Safety Commission is currently investigating polymer balls and beads. The balls
are not only found in toys but also sold widely as decorations. Consumer Reports strongly urges
that parents and caregivers keep these products out of the reach of children under the age of five.

El incredible cerebro infantil:
Los bebés nacen con la capacidad para utilizar todos de suyos sentidos.
Las experiencias que ellos tienen en la infancia temprana y a lo largo de
sus infancias ayudan a desarrollar estos sentidos. Aquí están algunos hechos sorprendentes sobre los sentidos de los bebés. El sentido táctil es tan
crucial, el cerebro puede procesar sensaciones táctiles por el cuarto mes de
gestación. Al nacer, este sentido es tan desarrollado que el bebé tendrá
una preferencia de suaves texturas más de texturas rugosas. Visión es el
sentido más lento desarrollar. Al principio el mundo es borroso, después de 3 meses sin embargo,
un niño puede seguir objetos en movimiento. Los bebés tienen un agudo sentido del gusto que primero se desarrolla alrededor del séptimo semana de gestación. Los gustos específicos que se dan
placer al niño están influenciado por lo que come la madre durante el embarazo. Por el 28º semana de gestación, un bebé puede percibir ruidos fuertes Los recién nacidos prefieren voces de sus
madres y tienen la capacidad de percibir cada fonema en cada idioma. Esta capacidad se pierde
dentro del primer año. El sentido del olfato también parece desarrollarse en el útero. Los bebés
muestran una preferencia por los olores de suyas madres más de las demás.
¡Cerebros de los bebés son sorprendentes! Piense en cómo usted puede ayudar a hacer esas conexiones neuronales con los bebés en tus cuidados.

Impresión ambiental “Yo espío” :
Impresión ambiental está alrededor de nosotros. Se compone de letras, palabras y símbolos que
los niños ven todos los días. Son las palabras impresas y signos que niños ven cuando ellos juegan, pasean, montan en el coche e ir a sus restaurantes favoritos. La impresión ambiental es a
menudo la primera "lectura" hace de un niño. ¡He conocido a niños que podrían reconocer los arcos de oro de McDonald’s antes de que pudieran hablar! Estos niños hicieron la conexión entre un
símbolo, el logo de McDonald’s y una comida favorita. En gran parte la misma manera aprenden
que letras forma palabras y esas palabras tienen un significado. Usted puede aumentar la conciencia de impresión y comenzar habilidades de lectura en los niños por creando un juego de ambiente de impresión con "Yo Espío".
Pida a los niños a traer impresos ambientales que tienen en el hogar tales como anuncios en periódicos, etiquetas de los alimentos, cajas de cereal vacías y aviadoras del negocio. Use a un pedazo
grande de cartulina y fijar los ejemplos de impresos ambiental allá con pegamento. Desafíe a los
niños para llenar la cartulina con la impresión ambiental. Cuando el tablero
está lleno pruebe estas actividades:
 Decir una letra del abecedario y pida a los niños a ver cuántas veces aparece en la tabla de "Yo Espío" que letra.
 Pida a los niños a encontrar palabras en el tablero que comienzan con
una letra elegida.
 Mención a un producto por nombre y reto los niños para buscar el elemento en el tablero.
 Dele a cada niño un tubo de toalla de papel para ver a través como identificar las letras.

Los peligrosos de Orbeez:
Orbeez son perlas de polímero pequeño. Son coloridos y atractivos,
pero Consumer Reports dice que son un peligro de seguridad potencial. El producto parece mucho a los dulces y los niños pueden ingerirlos. Mientras que la empresa afirma que no son tóxicos, el problema
con estas bolitas es que puede ampliar bastante en unas pocas horas
para bloquear los intestinos o las vías respiratorias de un niño pequeño les ingieren accidentalmente. El frente del paquete dice pueden
causar un peligro de asfixia para niños menores de tres años pero la
parte de atrás del paquete dice que este juguete no es apto para niños menores de cinco años.
Además, si los niños los pongan en sus narices o de los oídos, se amplían y convertirse en suave y
cuando al intentar removerlos se forman pequeños pedazos, cuales son difíciles de encontrar. La
Consumer Product Safety Comisión está investigando perlas y bolas de polímero. Las bolas son no
sólo encontrar en juguetes sino también vendidas extensamente como decoraciones. Consumer
Reports fuertemente insta a que los padres y cuidadores mantienen estos productos fuera del alcance de los niños menores de cinco años.
