Are you looking for new picture books to re-energize your storytimes?

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will have learned about many new books that can be included in storytimes, including:

  • Attention-holding books for babies and young toddlers
  • Cumulative, circular, sing-along, and audience participation books that enliven storytimes
  • Books that promote preliteracy skills and kindergarten readiness
