We are SO excited to kick off our #VolunteersWithAVoice edition of LLF’s Story Hour program with none other than Ms. Rhina Etienne, a true professional in Montessori Education and teacher at Casa dei Bambini! Ms. Rhina joined the Babicka family on Instagram Live for a reading of I Like Myself by Karen Beaumont, a beautiful story for young children about self-love and acceptance.

In these chaotic times, it is so important for children and adults alike to remember their value and their importance to this world! Ms. Rhina gave us three tips for young children to proudly communicate their amazing thoughts and ideas.

Communication Tips for Children

  1. Always try to use your words to say what you mean.
  2. Give your brain a kiss! Be proud of your brain and everything it does for you.
  3. Share what you’ve learned with your friends!

We look forward to our weekly #VolunteersWithAVoice segments, happening weekly through September! Upcoming guests include Louis Aguirre (Local 10 News), Jawan Strader (NBC6), Lisa Petrillo (CBS4 Miami), Kelly Blanco (NBC6), Adam Kuperstein (NBC4 New York), City of Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber, and more!

You can follow @ALittleRoom2Grow on Instagram for more of Ms. Rhina’s at-home Montessori tips for kids and parents!
