Chicago Public Library hosts children’s musicians “ScribbleMonster” in a series of 24 concerts this fall

Artistic program designed to include children within the autism spectrum

Starting on Sept. 17 and running through Dec. 2, Chicago Public Library will present 24 ScribbleMonster musical programs at six branch library locations for families of all ages.

ScribbleMonster can be heard nationally on children’s radio and their latest release was named one of the Top 5 Kids & Family Albums of the Year by National Public Radio.

Their “draw outside the lines” approach to music for the family has earned the band raves from parents and Parenting Magazine alike.

ScribbleMonster songs such as A Monster Goes Rrraargh! , Chocolate Milk, Candy for Breakfast, The Song of LIFE have all proven huge hits on Sirius/XM Radio, sung by Chicago’s kids and parents alike.  The band’s compilation album, Arts for Autism – A Spectrum of Special Song, was the winner of the 2003 Children’s Music Web Awards for Best Compilation for Preschoolers.

Created by Jim Dague (aka Scribble Jim), this children’s book and music series introduces children to the joy of creating. The ScribbleMonster approach to music and other activities centers on what children can do, rather than focusing on what they can’t.

Their philosophy is “all kids are creative equal” and that children learn by having fun and by expressing themselves through the arts: fine art, dance, the written word, music and singing.  By stimulating creative expression in a non-restrictive format that encourages each child’s own unique creative participation, ScribbleMonster’s open-ended approach to music validates each child’s efforts and builds upon their success in developmentally appropriate ways.

Come sing, think, play, dance and get creative with ScribbleMonster!

Please call the library location for registration information regarding this family program for all ages.

  1. My aunty has a 3 carat solitaire and its giant. That thing looks at least double the size of hers. A 5 or 6 carat ring would be more than a million bucks . Especially at tiffany’s. Probably she’s messing to you.
