Story Time to Go

Available Thursday, October 14 for pick up between 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM at the circulation desk

We know there’s a certain thing about storytime in-person, and since we have had to go back to virtual programming, we’ve decided to create a storytime to-go kit so you can host it in your home. The October kit includes the story Click, Clack, Boo by Doreen Cronin, activities, and a craft. You will need basic supplies at home to complete some crafts: crayons, glue or tape, and scissors, etc.

 

For ages 2-5.

October’s Book:  Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson

November’s Book:  Sleep Big Bear Sleep! by Maureen Wright

Wintertime is getting closer and closer! This means it’s time for Big Bear to hibernate, so Old Man Winter keeps telling him, “Sleep, Big Bear, Sleep.” But Big Bear doesn’t hear very well. Read the story outside on the front lawn with your family to see if Big Bear will ever understand that wintertime is nearing!
