Family Storytime

Storytime

Family Storytime provides an opportunity for caregivers to actively engage with their children under age 5.

Together with a Youth Librarian, you can build early literacy skills in a welcoming environment through meaningful stories, songs, and play. Encourage a love of language and reading while practicing listening and cooperative tasks. We look forward to sharing this experience with you.

Every Family Storytime is followed by a half hour of ABC Activity Time.

No registration required.

From Storytime

 

IF YOU'RE WEARING PANTS (Tune: If You're Happy and You Know It)

If you’re wearing pants and you know it, clap your hands

If you’re wearing pants and you know it, clap your hands

If you’re wearing pants and you know it, and you really want to show it,

If you're wearing pants and you know it, clap your hands.

[continue with stomp your feet, peekaboo, shout hurray!]

Because by Mo Willems

Peace and love go hand in hand.  We enjoyed reading and talking about both of those topics today in Family Storytime. After reading some of these wonderful books, be sure to get out into the world and spread the peace, love, and kindness we all have inside us.  Happy reading!
