Storytime to Go Kits aim to bring the storytime experience into a preschooler’s environment, wherever that may be.
The kits were created for use with children ages two to five to promote early literacy development. Each kit based on a theme contains five picture books, a children’s music CD, a manipulative (educational game, a puppet, puzzle, felt set, etc.) and an Early Child Ready to Read activity sheet. The activity sheet provides examples of how to incorporate each of the five early literacy skills – talk, sing, write, play and read – with the contents of the kit. Themes include alphabet, colors, dogs, feelings, health, monkeys, ocean, shapes, trains and many more.
Whether a parent, grandparent, daycare provider, or anyone who works with children, the Storytime to Go Kits provide you with all the necessary materials needed to spend some quality reading time with a child. What you do as a parent or as an important figure in any child’s life makes a difference in preparing a child to learn to read and the Storytime to Go kits make it easy for you to foster their love for reading.
