Children's artist, Jim Gill, stresses the importance of play through music, visit to Fulton

In graduate school, Gill studied play and learned its a way for children to develop and be better prepared for school. He stressed the five ways parents and guardians can help their children grow are simple and research-based — talking, singing, playing, writing and reading. He invited children and their parents to sing along with him on Tuesday, Jan. 21 at the Callaway County Library.
