Make up a game to go with a book.
For example, after reading an alphabet book, go for a walk to find different letters in nature.
For our final storytimes of the school year, the preschool groups on Wednesday and Friday read four fantastic stories about ducks! (Or maybe one of them was about a rabbit. We can’t decide.)
At the end of storytime, we played a game using rubber ducks that were dressed like heroes. We had superhero ducks in capes and masks, as well as everyday heroes like nurses, firefighters, and members of the armed forces. We will be seeing these ducks again in a few weeks, and every child who signs up for the library’s Summer Reading Program will get to take one home. The theme for this summer’s program is Every Hero Has a Story. What story will your duck tell?
