Activity:  Book Making!

Although they're not considered Community Helpers (technically) I think people who are responsible for making books are pretty awesome! It's because of authors and illustrators that I have my career! As a follow-up activity for my visit I brought supplies for the students to make their own mini books. These can easily be made at home or in the classroom!  Here is a post from a past visit to CCS, which includes instructions on making your own book.

Each Outreach Storytime includes activities that support one or more of the five early literacy practices identified as essential in helping your child develop the skills they need before they can learn to read. The five practices – singing, talking, reading, playing and writing –were developed for Every Child Ready to Read®, an initiative of the Association for Library Services for Children (ALSC) and the Public Library Association (PLA).
