A Message of Support for British Columbia

Challenge and devastation continues in our nation, with British Columbia recently being hit with a severe storm causing monumental flooding and mudslides. British Columbia has declared a state of emergency, with many homes lost, disruptions to supply chain and food availability, and families evacuated, uprooted, and isolated.

For all those affected by this recent event, The National Council of the Parent-Child Mother Goose Program wishes to extended our heartfelt condolences, and we hope our thoughts of comfort and support help in a small way through these difficult times. 

Once again, we will get through this, and we can have some fun together singing, rhyming and storytelling while doing it.

In this issue we are featuring an uplifting story about the introduction, development, and success of the Parent-Child Mother Goose Program in Afghanistan. “We are so grateful for this beautiful development of the Mother Goose program. It is simply wonderful for young families, and we know that it will have long-term benefits, as it does everywhere, and especially now while times are very tough in Afghanistan.” It’s lovely to see Mother Goose enjoyed by professionals and families around the world.
