Are you looking for fun ways to spice up circle time? Maybe you want some ideas about how to bring storytime home.

You're in luck.

Every second Monday of the month, we'll post a short video with a prop you can make at home. We'll provide the ideas and instructions. You provide the materials and elbow grease. Together, we'll make reading fun for you and your children.

Take a walk in any of Henrico County's local parks and you might find (or hear) some frogs hanging out near the water. What better way to celebrate the transition between spring and summer than hopping into your local library to check out some of these great books and activities.


Picture Books:

Jump! by Scott M. Fischer - In addition to the rhyming text, Jump! is perfect for antsy toddlers and preschoolers who love to jump. Rather than have children sit for the story, encourage them to act out the plot. They'll jump a lot and have a lot of fun in the process!

Ribbit! by Rodrigo Folguiera - A family of frogs discovers an unexpected visitor one morning when they find a pig in their pond. Lots of animals are introduced as the frogs try to decide what to do with this little pink pig, making this book a wonderful way to practice animal sounds with younger children and talk about friendship with older ones. And, of course, everyone can have fun saying "ribbit!"
