Spring 2019 Story Time

April 29th – June 14th (7 weeks)

Tips for a successful story time – PLEASE READ

One of the biggest concerns I hear from caregivers is “My child can’t sit still for a half hour of story time.” Worry not! In Tiny Tots and Totally Toddlers Story Times we expect children to want to move around. That’s why we only read one short book and focus the rest of our energy on songs, movement, and play. Come time for Pre-School Story Time, we do expect a little more in terms of sitting longer for stories, but that comes with practice and patience!

With that said, if your child is having a rough day, please don’t hesitate to step out as needed. We have puzzles, books, coloring, etc. in the other room. Feel free to decompress a bit and then rejoin class.

It’s also important as a caregiver to model good story time behavior. Participate and engage! Your child will see you having a good time and want to join in the fun!

Food: Ahhhh food…tasty, delicious snacks…We obviously do NOT want to deprive young children, and especially babies, of their nutrition, but please use good judgement. Aside from the distraction that snacks can create, we do have to be mindful of food allergies, as well as potential messes that can be left behind.

And finally: If your child is SICK, it’s ok to miss class and join us when they are feeling better!


Tiny Tots Story Time

This program is designed for our youngest library patrons from birth up to age 3 (36 months), with a parent or guardian.  It includes songs, rhymes, finger plays and a short book.  We also use musical instruments/shakers, puppets, puzzles, blocks, and end with an optional coloring activity.  This is an excellent opportunity for learning and socialization.
