Mother Goose reads to area preschoolers

Sioux City, IOWA (KTIV) - What were some of your favorite Mother Goose nursery rhymes growing up?

Was it Hey Diddle Diddle, the Cat and the Fiddle.

Or how about Humpty Dumpty?

Monday, Mother Goose stopped at Apple Tree Preschool and Learning Center to read some of her stories to kids.

This is part of the National Week of the Young Child.

But teachers say this week isn't just for young kids.

"It's really meant to involve parents in the community to come to a greater understanding of the importance of early learning years of early child development," said Diane Merchant, Apple Tree Director.

This week started several years ago when teachers wanted to increase the awareness on early child development.
