Our new Sensory Storytime Kits are here and ready to go! We designed them to make storytimes at home more enjoyable and accessible for young children of all abilities! Each multisensory kit has an engaging story with an accompanying CD, a sensory-friendly toy and manipulative especially helpful for visual or tactile little learners who may be on the Autism Spectrum or have other developmental delays. You can find our new Sensory Storytime Kits located in the Children's Library. Check one out today!
