Storytime routine for toddlers: Building a love for reading


Creating a storytime routine for toddlers is a great way to build a love for reading. Start by choosing a quiet and comfortable space for storytime and selecting age-appropriate books that are engaging and visually appealing. Introduce the book and its author to the children and encourage them to participate by asking questions and making comments. Use different voices and sound effects to make the story more interesting and pause occasionally to ask children to predict what will happen next. You can also use props or puppets to enhance the story and encourage children to retell the story in their own words. Discuss the story's themes and lessons and end the storytime with a song or rhyme related to the story. With these tips, your toddler will be excited for storytime every day!
