#Storytime, Any Time
Have you ever thought to yourself, "I wish the library offered more storytime programs to fit our busy schedule"? Traveling Tales are a collection of convenient book bundles and activity kits for preschoolers, ages two to five, that you can take home! Parents, caregivers and educators: Get your preschoolers ready to read and ready for school with help from the Library!
#How does it work?
A helpful "User's Guide" is included in each themed kit with songs, games, and art project ideas that make it easy for anyone to provide quality storytime experiences at home, at a daycare, or in your preschool facility.
#Each kit contains:
- 5-7 carefully selected children’s books
- Puppets or other interactive manipulative
- A complete flannel board story, song or rhyme
Materials for each theme are contained in a sturdy bag and can be checked out with your library card.
#Check out up to three themes at a time!
You can find dozens of Traveling Tales Kits in the Library's online catalog. Just place a hold, set your preferred pickup location and you're good to go! When you're done, you can return the Traveling Tales kit to any Jacksonville Public Library location.
