A Day at the Brooklyn Library













Hello Everyone,
Boy did we have fun at the Brooklyn Library. As my daughter says, " It's the bestest place in the world!"
he he he he he!! We read and sang ,"Let Freedom Sing" and did a few songs from "Neo Soul Nursey Rhymes".
We had a ball! The children seem to really enjoy themselves and I even had them scatting along to
Spider Jazz he he he he!! They make great background singers. A very special thank you to Deloris and
Angeli from the library staff. You ladies are the bestest!!! To my sister Coy I love you sooooo much!
Rosa I love you girly your are the bomb! Thanks to all the beautiful children who came to share the day!
You guys were AWESOME!!!!!! I agree with my daughter the Brooklyn Library is the bestest place in world!
