Story Hour is an opportunity for parents/grandparents and caregivers to introduce their children to reading and language in a fun way. At story hour, children have an opportunity to do activities that promote development and learning. Preschool-aged children are curious about everything. Story Hour is a perfect way for preschoolers to listen and learn about the questions they ask. Kids love singing familiar songs and doing fun activities. Parents/grandparents and caregivers are invited to play along. Children and their grownups will explore stories and activities to encourage children to develop a lifelong love of reading and learning. These 45 minute programs are designed to promote language and listening skills, expand children’s imagination and arouse their curiosity about the world around them. Library story hour incorporates the early literacy skills, such as vocabulary building, phonological awareness, and letter knowledge, that children must master before they can learn to read.
