Storytime on the Go
Throughout May
Create a storytime experience at home with Storytime On the Go packets. Each packet will include 6 books and an age appropriate early literacy activity. So easy...just grab and go! Toddler (suggested up to age 3) books for children who are ready for short stories. Preschool (suggested ages 3 - 5) books that include longer stories. Prefer to select books on your own? We can do that, too! Select 6 books then stop at the desk in the children's room to pick up that week's activity. Packets are available throughout the month of May with new ones added every Tuesday. Look for the display in the Children's Room. The early literacy activity will support one or more of the five early literacy practices: talking, singing, reading, writing and playing. Have questions or need assistance? Contact Miss Sharon & Miss Sandie at  or call (508) 336-8230 x56140. .
