Sensory Story Time

We just held out first Sensory Story Time at the BB branch.  This story time, which is opened to all children ages 2-5, is especially geared to children with sensory integration issues.  It is a great opportunity for our community to welcome all children at our library and see the benefits of storytimes.

 


For each of the Sensory Storytimes we pick a theme, read books related to the theme, present songs, do fingerplays/rhymes and play games related to the subject.
