Wake Co Libraries: Stories to Go Kits

From Sarah C.:

I recently discovered a wonderful program for toddlers and preschoolers offered by Wake County Libraries - Stories to Go kits. The kits are designed to help parents instruct their young children. The exact contents vary based on theme, but include a number of wonderful items such as books, music CDs, puppets, and an educator guide all in a large canvas bag. There are 12 different kits to choose from - All About Me, Clothes, Color Me Round, Community Workers, Down on the Farm, Food, Going to the Zoo, Let's Go!, Mother Goose, Pets, Senses, and Weather.

Parents can request kits by visiting the website (link below). You will be asked to select first and second choice for kits and will be notified by the library when it is ready for pick-up. Pick-up occurs at the library of your choice in the kids' section. As it is already checked out for you, you just need to ask a staff member to retrieve it. You then have 4 weeks to enjoy.

We borrowed the toddler Senses kit last month. D and my niece both loved it. There were 10 books (including a couple touch and feel which are always favorites), 4 puppets, flannelboard pieces and an educator guide with fingerplays & songs.

The stories to go kits have been a wonderful resource for my toddlers. The link no longer works on the Wake County Libraries website. It appears that the program is no longer available. :-(
