Storytime to Go
There’s no Storytime at the library right now, but we’ve got you covered! Each Tuesday until December 22, pick up a Storytime to Go kit. The kits are created for use with children ages two to five to promote early literacy development. Each kit contains themed material of two books, a music CD, craft, activity sheets, and a snack. For us to prepare enough kits, we ask parents and caregivers to register each child individually. Click here to go to the Google Form Sign-Up.
Requested kits can be picked up each Tuesday during our regular open hours. Library materials will be checked out to the requesting parent or caregiver using the normal circulation period. We ask these materials to be returned, along with any great works of art our young artists would like to display in the Children’s Area.
We hope these kits help you spend time talking, singing, writing, playing, and reading with a child fostering a lifelong love for reading and a lifetime of success.
The Horicon Public Library has added Wonderbooks to our children’s collection. Wonderbooks are children’s books of all reading levels with a ready-to-play audiobook already inside. Just press play to start your adventure.
Easy use controls, speaker or headphone jack, and rechargeable batteries make Wonderbooks the perfect choice to help turn any kid into a super reader. By listening and reading along, even reluctant readers can improve reading speed, develop vocabulary, and improve comprehension. After you’re finished the book, switch to Learning Mode to get involved with questions, and discuss the text.
Stop by the library and check one out.
