Sharing Some of Our Storytime Favorites

Our San Mateo County Libaries children's librarians love to read picture books, especially during our weekly storytimes. Two elements that make for a great storytime book are clear, eye-catching illustrations, and a story or text that is easy for kids to follow and relate to. We also love books that give kids a chance to participate by joining on repeated words or phrases and books with characters that reflect our communities' diverse backgrounds and experiences.

Below are some storytime favorites from several of our children's librarians. We hope you love them too!
