  • Description

Family Literacy Storytimes gives you the insight and inspiration to plan literacy-rich, memorable storytimes that have the power to bring the whole family together. In a fun-filled environment, families new to the English language can begin family literacy before the child enters school.

In Family Literacy Storytimes you will have all the tools you need to foster oral fluency in English while providing exposure to excellent children’s literature. Each of the 25 themed storytime plans includes an outline for a 30 minute program designed to help parents and children learn together. Each theme includes an annotated list of recently published picture books selected to help you teach the American Library Association (ALA) six pre-literacy skills. Using the many extended learning activities, games, original songs, parent handouts, craft patterns and storytelling aids, you can give parents the tools they need to be their child’s best teacher. Families experiencing success together in your library–what could be better than that?
