Books and Music with the Kids’ Orchestra

Collect new musical skills! Discover new library books! Learn new dance steps! Kid’s Orchestra invites children, ages 5-11, to open experiential program that combines library books with music education. Each month, children will explore a theme as they learn about an instrument, sing a song, explore a dance, and play a game – all inspired by a book in the East Baton Rouge Parish Library collection.

Discover the world of Jamaican reggae music by learning some dancehall moves, playing percussion instruments, meeting professional musicians, and singing “Every little thing’s gonna be all right!” We will read and explore the book, Every Little Thing by Cedella Marley, who adapted her father Bob Marley’s song “Three Little Birds” into a beautiful children’s book that celebrates joy in the sights and sounds of the world around us. See below for opportunities to attend this fun program! All children under the age of 9 must be accompanied by an adult. Registration is required.
