Don’t Just Take Our

she’s in there, but at home,
she’s got all the words and
moves down.” Mother to

“One of her favorite games
to play is where she pretends
to be the librarian, and lines

reads stories to them. She
plays this game for hours.”
Mother of Emma, Age 3

Why Storytime?
Did you know that early literacy skills
start to develop in the brain in the
first five years of life? From the time
your child is born (or slightly before)
to the time he or she starts
kindergarten is a crucial time to
foster these important skills.
Our goal for storytime is to provide
your child with an atmosphere that’s
fun, verbal and stimulating, not school
-like. The focus isn’t teaching, but
having fun with reading. We want to
create an interactive literacy-rich
environment, full of fun opportunities
to learn language that will develop
those early literacy skills.
What Skills?

Get Ready to Read

Reading Aloud

Talk to Them
Your baby’s brain actually changes by hearing adults talk. So sing, play games like
peak-a-boo, read rhymes, and talk to your
child all the time. The library has books,
CD’s, and storytimes to help get you
Read to Them
By the time your toddler is
almost three, he is learning
up to 9 new words a day.
By the age of four, children
should know around 5,000
words. Continue to read
out loud to your child to help grow their

Reading aloud is
crucial in your
child’s life,
whether it’s at
home or during
storytime at the
library. Here are some tips for
choosing books they’ll like for your
shared reading:

Choose a variety of ABC’s, 123’s,
fiction and nonfiction, mother
goose rhymes, and wordless
picture books.

Try to look for bright, colorful
illustrations or photographs that
fit the theme of the book, and
also reflect their daily life.

Look for books with rhyme and
repetition. Rhyme and Repetition.
Rhyme get it, right?

Make sure they’re fun to read
aloud. This is the time to make
reading an enjoyable experience,
and not work. Eventually they’ll
have to read The Scarlett Letter and As I Lay Dying, but not

Bring them to Storytime
Storytime at the
library will help your
child take the first
steps toward getting
ready for school. We want to
encourage an eagerness to learn by
having fun in a developmentally and
play oriented setting. Each storytime
has activities that will help strengthen
these skills, from making art to acting
out stories, and more!

Children of all ages enjoy listening to
stories, and benefit from the social
interactions that storytime brings. The
routine that it follows helps them get
ready for school, as does the language that
they develop talking to
other children and
adults. Even better?
It’s all free.
