Baby & Toddler “Rhyme Time” Online
Audio recordings will be posted each Tuesday on the Stillwater Public Library Facebook page. Leave a comment if you like these developmentally appropriate offerings.
A note from Miss Kim:
Hello, Dear Baby/Toddler Storytime Families!
All of us at the Stillwater Public Library miss seeing you so much, and look forward to when we can all be back together in person! Until then, Miss Angie and I would like to experiment with offering a short weekly audio version “Rhyme Time” for you to explore with your little ones.
While there are many online video storytime options available for families while libraries are closed, based on the compelling research calling for limiting screen time for children under two years old we'd like to try this audio-only storytime tool for the youngest children. Our hope is that a familiar voice leading a few favorite and new songs and rhymes each week will help support your family’s early literacy work together at home. Alternately or additionally, there is a link available that has the printed words to each song or rhyme.
Parents, siblings and other primary caregivers are Baby’s first and most important teachers, and we want to support you in that role in as many ways as we can. We look forward to your feedback as we explore this new experimental method of sharing the joy and connectivity of songs, rhythm and rhymes together with our youngest children.
We all miss you so much!
Kim Faurot, Assistant Youth Services Librarian
