Get ready to celebrate the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacation (and the Library's Summer Reading Program) by singing, clapping, dancing and sneezing along during this visit by award-winning musician and author Jim Gill. Jim Gill’s distinctive music play creates the spirit of a family room in the concert space and is an invitation to children, parents and grandparents to sing and play together!
A Monroe County favorite, Jim Gill is a musician and author with unique credentials among children's artists. He's a child development specialist who completed his graduate studies at the Erikson Institute of Chicago, with a special emphasis on the study of play. For this reason, each of Jim's recordings, books and concerts is crafted as an opportunity for playful interactions between a child and a caring adult. Anyone who's experienced one of Jim's family concerts knows that, rather than performing for the children and parents, Jim leads them to sing and play together.
