Storytime is Your Time to Shine - Tucson

A Workshop Designed to Engage & Empower Youth Librarians

Spotlighting the American Library Association’s (ALA) Every Child Ready to Read (ECRR) and the Five Practices, Jen Strauss will demonstrate how to build interactive programs that will engage young patrons AND model healthy language & literacy practices for parents and caregivers.

This intentionally hands-on workshop will focus on the important Window of Opportunity during the brain development of children, 0-5 years of age and emphasize the power of diverse language experiences to help children grow, learn and mature.

  • Participants will be given a multitude of opportunities to engage in stories, songs, and language-rich “make-and-takes” for props, pre-writing, and writing activities.
  • Participants will be introduced to a Storytime Planning Template, receive extensive workshop handouts, the PowerPoint deck, and future access to the presenter for questions and consultation.
