Reading, singing, playing, writing, and talking promote literacy and help you prepare your child for kindergarten. These story time backpacks include materials to support these activities.
We recommend alternating between stories, songs, and rhymes. Save the craft project for the end of your story time. Children love to hear their favorite songs and books over and over. Do not hesitate to add or repeat a book, song, or rhyme.
You will need to return the Story Time Back Pack and the materials that say "need to return." You may keep the activity sheet and the craft materials.
Stop by the children’s desk for more books or ideas for your story time!
The Library's 24 S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) backpacks are suitable for children ages 5 - 12 and include lots of hands-on materials as well as books and DVDs to support the theme of the bag. These bags are intended to be used with parent participation and check out for two weeks.
