Frisco Public Library Delayed Opening

The Library will be opening at 10 AM on Friday, December 14. 

Sing - Toddlers

  • Sing nursery rhymes with your child and teach new songs often. Singing helps children break down the sounds of words and increases vocabulary in a fun way.
  • Throw a dance party! Moving to music and rhythm is an excellent way for your young child to build motor skills.
  • Sing words and sentences slowly to your child. This breaks sentences apart and helps your child decode the small sounds in words and syllables.
