Baby Storytime Resources

I’ve been lucky enough to have a weekly baby storytime for five years now! (Click on the “My Baby Storytime” category to the right for all my plans.) Here’s some of the posts I’ve written about how I do my baby storytime, as well as a link to a baby storytime resource page I put together for the Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy website.

    Thank you so much for posting this all in one place. I’ve been a children’s librarian for less than a year, and I’m still trying to find my rhythm with baby storytime. I really appreciate folks like you who share ideas. It really helps me to develop my own style!

    So happy this is a help! I love having everything in one place, too. Let me know if you have a question or are looking for a resource and can’t find it–we’ll crowdsource and see what we can do!
