Parents are also helped by story time, as they watch reading, telling and active play they can learn effective patterns and model their own story telling to help teach their children critical skills. When parents participate in story time it sends a strong message to children that what they are doing is important to Mom and Dad too.
Undoubtedly, one of the most important factors of kindergarten readiness is a child's eagerness to learn. Having fun is an important part of the learning process and what is more fun than library story time?
