Toddlers got excited about the color red during “Baby Brilliant” at the Austintown library Sept. 12.

Children’s librarian Kathe Orr made color identification an interactive experience for parents and children while incorporating reading, arts and crafts, science, songs and dance into the program for children to have fun while learning.

Caregiver Estee Elias, of Canfield, was excited to bring Livia Catlin, who is an avid reader, to the program to learn and meet new children.

“She likes books and they have a nice library. Today was excellent. I like when they get kids involved and they get to jump around and move. The interaction with other kids prepares them for preschool because they are listening to the teacher and it’s like a classroom setting,” Elias said.

The library’s meeting room was full of music and laughter as children played games.

Orr kept children energized and motivated throughout the event and, at one point, even performed a scientific experiment by mixing shaving cream and food coloring to demonstrate what colors are formed when combined. Parents also joined in on the festivities and sang along with their children.
