Reading Wordless Books

Reading wordless picture books with children stimulates their imagination and builds their vocabulary and comprehension skills. Check out this video for some fun wordless book suggestions!

A Soupy Opera With Jim Gill

One of the many things I miss about storytime is getting to sing silly Jim Gill songs with all of you. Although we can’t be together with our “spaghetti legs” being”noisy in Boise,” here is a fun book and song we can enjoy virtually. Be sure you stand up, move around, and sing along to the story. You will learn more if you play along with Jim Gill.

From Miss Carol’s Corner

We know you can’t come to the library for storytime, but how about playing your own storytime game at home.  Gather all your stuffed animals, siblings, and pets to listen to you read a story.  What?  You can’t read yet?  It doesn’t matter.  Make up your own story using the pictures from your favorite book.  It’s lots of fun!  Enjoy Miss Carol’s storytime for her dog Tasha.
