Singing, reading at toy store connects parents and children

Sep. 4—Sacha Hyatt looked out to a small group of parents and their children sitting in a circle in the middle of the Dancing Bear Toys and Games store on Monday morning.

With a smile, Hyatt led everyone through a series of songs and a children's story during the toy store's Bear Cubs event.

The Bear Cubs series, which will take place each Monday in September, is a reincarnation of a similar series the store, at 15 E. Patrick St. in downtown Frederick, held from 2013 to 2019 called Babies at the Bear.
