August 2022: “El Cucuy Is Scared, Too!”

First Friday – “El Cucuy Is Scared, Too! ” Reading

Ramon can’t sleep because he is nervous the night before his first day at a new school.  After a conversation with El Cucuy, the monster who lives in Ramon’s cactus pot, Ramon discovers that… El Cucuy is scared, too!  This gentle story explores the worries that accompany moving to a new place and beginning a new journey.  It reveals how comfort, bravery, and strength can be found through even the most unexpected of friendships. Children, parents, and providers are all welcome.


First Friday – “Melt Away Your Worries” Learning Activity

“Melt Away Your Worries”

w/ Kitchen Science

Children have worries too!

Let’s use things we already have (ice, water, salt) to start a conversation about identifying our fears and/or worries while introducing children to strategies they can use to confront and “melt” their future worries away.


Sing-Along: “Cielito Lindo”

Turn up this traditional song of Mexico as a reminder to “Sing, don’t cry”…
