Family Concerts with Jim Gill in Berwyn and Melrose Park!
In February 2023, we teamed up with children’s musician Jim Gill to bring awareness to local early childhood resources through two community concerts. They also featured a read-along and sing-along of one of Jim’s musical books, May There Always Be Sunshine. After singing and dancing, children and their families were invited to draw their own wishes for what they hope there will always be.
Jim Gill collected the drawings and created a video book of all the things young children in Suburban West Cook hope there will always be. This community video book was created by Jim Gill in partnership with the Collaboration for Early Childhood. It was made possible thanks to a grant from Illinois Action for Children and the Illinois Cares for Kids campaign.
