early literacy skills

When you first enter the storytime area, you and your child have the opportunity to choose a book from the book box and read together.  This and any time spent reading together is very important, as it allows children to begin to understand the function of words and pictures in books.  On an even simpler level, this activity helps kids to understand that we read a book from top to bottom and left to right, as well as how to turn the pages.

So take the time to read to your child, even at storytime!
