Bringing you weekly tips and rhyme recommendations you can use to have your own storytime at home.

Weekly Tip

Nursery rhymes are a great way to help your child learn new words in a fun way. Hearing rhymes also helps children develop skills that they will use when they are learning to read. Set your child up for reading success by sharing nursery rhymes with him or her regularly.

Jack be nimble, Jack be quick. (Bounce child lightly on lap)

Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey.
Along came a spider
Who sat down beside her,
And frightened Miss Muffet away.

In a yellow petticoat and a green gown.
