Toddlertime (1 1/2 – 3 yrs) @ Chelsea District Library at KidSpot

is our storytime that emphasizes certain early literacy skills for your child.
We will lay the foundation for reading through letter knowledge (with our
Letter People Puppets!) and vocabulary building (great new books to read
together!). Activities such as group songs, interactive felt board stories, and
our action rhymes, will entertain and educate. Our age-specific
toys, which come out the last 10 minutes, will encourage socialization. Your
child will leave thinking the library is a super fun place, all while learning
pre-reading skills! Parents/caregivers must remain in room with child.In order for all children to participate and have a successful experience, please let us know if your child has any special needs that we can accommodate. Call Jessica at 734-475-8732, ext. 208.
