When we play along with the storytime theme, by doing rhymes and songs that reinforce the books we read, we are helping to transfer the words, ideas, and energy of storytime into children’s lives. By making books and related activities fun, we are motivating children to want more. That’s print motivation! You can do this at home by reading a story to your child then doing another activity, like a song or rhyme, that is about the same thing.
