Storytime At Your Local Library & National Simultaneous Story Time

by kateG (follow)
The magic of books and story-telling has delighted children for centuries.

Kids love books


As a parent, there is nothing more enjoyable than seeing the sheer delight that a child gets out of a book. From the moment they are born, it is recommended that kids should be exposed to books.

The benefits of reading to kids from an early age has so many benefits, including:

- Develops their imagination
- Gives parents another way to bond with their children
- Help develop the child’s language
- Encourages a love of books and libraries from an early age.

It’s great to enjoy the magic of books at home but you can also enjoy the magic of books at your local libraries who offer age appropriate story time sessions.

I recently took the G boys to Croydon Library pre-school story time.

Kids listening to one of the stories during story time


For 45 minutes, the librarian read 2-3 stories relating to the theme of the day, as well as sang action songs and encouraged the kids to participate with parents. The kids were then given free rein of the puzzle box and some weeks they have a craft activity on offer.

The 45-minute session is just long enough to keep the kids focused and interested.

This is a great free activity where kids of similar ages can socialise with each other and enjoy similar interests.
