The Five Elements for Heart/Mind Learning
Libraries of Hope
A hundred years ago, educators rightly understood that hearts must be warmed before minds can be taught. The gift of story, art and music are the primary tools for warming the heart while children are young. One of our favorite resources to help parents and teachers incorporate the arts into their child's education can be found at Libraries of Hope. Many of the resources on this site are available at no charge. This valuable service allows all families to build their own library of resources that can be used for many years to come.
“Children need art and stories and poems and music as much as they need love and food and fresh air and play."
