Miss storytime? You can practice many of the early literacy concepts we use in storytime at home! Don't forget to sign up for text alerts so you can make it to the next storytime!

Theme: Grow, Grow, Food!

Use the five early literacy practices; talking, singing, reading, playing and writing with these books and projects!

TALK about how plants grow

Get ready to WRITE by developing your motor skills - try stringing beads and buttons on pipe cleaners

SING along with Laurie Berkner on one of her popular cds, including Victor Vito.

PLAY with your paper bag puppet
  • Turn your paper bag into a puppet by using the paper scraps, as is or cut into different shapes, to decorate it
