Storytime introduces the child to the best in children's books. Because a child responds naturally to the rhythm of words and the repetition of sounds, storytimes include nursery rhymes, poetry, fingerplays and songs. The child who attends storytime regularly will develop an enjoyment and appreciation of books, the ability to concentrate, and the ability to participate in group activities. Suggestions for a successful (virtual) Storytime experience.
