StoryBlocks for Story Time

Family readingAre you looking for songs and rhymes for your story times? Check out StoryBlocks. StoryBlocks are short videos created by Colorado librarians for Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy (CLEL). They are produced by Rocky Mountain PBS and funded by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Libraries Services.

The videos are geared toward babies, toddlers, or preschoolers. Each video is  only about a minute long, and each includes a tip for caregivers to help their young child develop literacy skills. Transcripts are provided so you can follow along with the words or lyrics. Some of the videos are available in Spanish and Vietnamese.

For more early literacy tips you can use for story time, check out the CLEL blog. They’ve even got a convenient list of all the story time-related blog posts.
