Storytime Kits


Storytime kits are just what they sound like – collections of books and activities with a central theme that help you create meaningful literary experiences with your child. With kit themes like counting, colors, ABCs, and much more, you and your little ones are sure to find a fun kit to take home and enjoy.

Each kit comes with several picture books, an interactive toy, a suggested craft, and a tip sheet featuring songs, rhymes, and activities caregivers can use to supplement the materials and have their very own storytime at home, or in the park, or on the go!  The kits have been thoughtfully developed to build important early literacy skills in young children.  Engaging in a variety of storytime activities – both at home and at the library – builds a foundation for life-long reading skills.
