Storytime kits offered for preschoolers at SPL

Swanton Public Library is offering storytime kits for preschool children this fall.

Every month, they will pick two picture books from the website Storyline Online to showcase and put together packets to take home. The books are read by famous people and celebrities and animated using the illustrations.

The activities included will be the color game played at storytime, a handout with rhymes and web links, coloring sheets, stickers, activity sheets, a mini maraca, and a craft.

Available Oct. 5-16: Enjoy a free copy of “Strega Nona” by Tomie dePaola, and go online to and watch actress Mary Steenburgen narrate the story. Afterwards, enjoy the activities.

Available Oct. 19-30: Enjoy “Zombies Don’t Eat Veggies” by Megan and Jorge Lacera. Go online to and watch actor Jaime Camil read the story. You can also watch Jaime read the story in Spanish. Then, enjoy the activities.

Please make sure to return the book to the library – the rest is yours.
