Designed for babies and toddlers, this storytime uses simple books, music, and movement to introduce our youngest listeners to storytime. The toddlers will practice social skills by interacting with other children their age and following one and two-step directions in order to complete basic tasks, like replicating body movements, clapping to a song, or using small musical instruments. The program will take place in the Children's area and is intended for children ages 2 and under.
