Get ready to sing, clap, dance and spin along with award-winning musician and author Jim Gill at the Cape May County Zoo!

There will be drinks, snacks, and a sign up table for library cards, Summer Reading, & 1000 Books Before Kindergarten for you to learn more about what the library has to offer.
Jim Gill is a musician and author with unique credentials among children's artists. Jim is a child development specialist, completing his graduate studies in child development at the Erikson Institute of Chicago with a special emphasis on the study of play. For this reason, each of Jim's recordings and books is created as an opportunity for playful interactions between a child and a caring adult. Anyone who has experienced one of Jim's family concerts knows that rather than performing for the children and parents, Jim leads them to sing and play together.
Jim has released ten award-winning CDs of music play for young children that are favorites in family rooms, classrooms and playrooms. Jim is also the author of two children's books. His most popular, A Soup Opera, is a sing-along opera inspired by concerts that Jim performs with symphony orchestras.
