Why Children’s Brains Love Storytime

The way a child’s brain grows depends on what it experiences.  For young children, storytime is an experience-rich magic carpet ride.

  • They hear spoken language.
  • They see colorful pictures.
  • They exercise fine and gross motor skills with fingerplays and story stretches.
  • They sing and move along with music.
  • They imagine and connect stories to their own experiences.

Storytime provides kids with challenging new multisensory experiences.  That’s why kid’s brains love storytime!
