Say Hello!
by Linda Davick


Illustrations and rhyming text reveal that "hello" can be said many ways, from a handshake to a dance of happiness, and that the world would be a lot more fun if more hellos were shared.

     We talked about the importance of helping children cope with transitions, whether from one activity to another (playing to going to the dinner table) or going to a new school or moving to a new house.  There are ways to ease into transitions by creating routines or continuing routines but letting them evolve as a child gets older. A goodbye routine might be giving your child a special hug and kiss just before you part, but can evolve into pat and a smile by the time they are "big kids.”  Coping with transitions can help if you offer steps along the way—like offering a snack to stop play, then continue to the next step when they are rested and calmed enough to move on.  Simple songs are fun – for cleaning up (Clean up, clean up, everybody clean up) or going to bed (its time to go bed, its time to go bed, heigh-ho the derry-o, its time to go to bed).  As you show your child the way to cope, they will develop their own internal transition coping skills. 
 
     Announcing a transition with the podcast:  Heidi will be moving into summer time activities at the library and will not be doing the podcast.  Lauren will continue the podcast with special guests as we move into our Summer Season 2019. 

       See you in the transition!
