On May 7, all Saint Paul Public Library locations will be closed, but the Bookmobile will be in service.


Singing slows down language so children can hear the different sounds that make up words.

  • Sing the alphabet song and nursery rhymes.
  • Sing the stories in books.
  • Playfully change the first letter in words to create new rhyming words.
  • Repeat songs and add actions, such as clapping, waving, or pointing.
  • Sing along with children's music.
  • Make up your own songs!
