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.
