Create Your Own Early Learning Kits

Share the excitement of learning by creating some of these wonderful kits! Early Learning Kits were developed to bring library resources out of the library and into the community. Their aim is to increase literacy and pre-literacy skills in our community through the use of developmentally appropriate literature, toys, and activities, as well as to aid in creating a learning environment in which children are entertained, engaged, and excited to learn.

 Each Kit document consists of:

  1. a full page table of contents-to be printed and organized into a binder for both staff and patron reference
  2. a half page table of contents-to be printed and taped inside the lid of the storytime kit box
  3. a box label-to be laminated and attached outside the storytime kit box
  4. a list of materials with a hyperlink to vendors
  5. a list of suggested readings with a hyperlink to the California Preschool Learning Foundations

The book labels have been made using the Avery 5960 label template. Or, they can be printed on paper and taped.
