The virtual storytimes I have been holding for toddlers and preschoolers have been more successful than I had hoped…or feared. Children have been much more engaged and responsive via Zoom than I believed they would. They dance along to the songs. They join in on fingerplays. And they have a lot to say at the end of storytime when we say “hello” to each participant. However, the question remained…what to do with babies? I’ve been experimenting and would like to share some thoughts.
Baby Storytime at the library starts again in a matter of weeks, so it’s a good time to regroup by reflecting on past programs and Supercharging future program plans with interactive books and activities that support early literacy skills.
