Teaching Safety at Storytime

Teaching Safety at Storytime

Published: May 30, 2019

If you’d like to teach your kids about safety in a way that’s accessible to them, count on this program led by a cuddly yellow dinosaur! Its approach is age-appropriate and effective, based on the Nobel Prize-winning research of Dr. Roger Sperry and the internationally recognized research on children in crisis of Dr. Bruce Perry. The program has educated more than three million children since being introduced in 1987.

The Yello Dyno curriculum features video clips, is music driven, and is intended to benefit children from 4-12 years old. It touches on ways for young people to avoid the impact of bullies and cyberbullies, violent children and adults, drug pushers, kidnappers, abusers, and predators. It does this by teaching youngsters to identify deceptive behavior in others, to react to their own instincts, and to build self- confidence.

To have your child participate in this important session, please call the library at 828.428.2712 to register. The storytime event takes place Thursday, June 6 at 10 am at the Maiden Branch Library.
