May Spotlight

Each month the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library will be putting the spotlight on a different topic related to early literacy, children's literature, parenting or a variety of other topics concerning the youngest children in our community. May's Spotlight is on Your Child's Social & Emotional Development. Visit our Birth to Six web page and you'll find selected books, articles and websites relating to this topic.

One of the featured sites of the month comes from Talaris Research Institute. According to their website, "Talaris Research Institute works to improve the social, emotional and cognitive development of children from the prenatal period through age five by providing parents with tools to raise their children effectively." Talaris has partnered with PBS to prepare short one-minute videos on topics relating to coping with stress and paying attention to a child's emotions.
