During story time, children learn about books, how to handle them, that words read left to right on the page, that reading starts at the top of the page, and that pictures tell us more about the story.  So much more happens, though, when the story being read is purposely accompanied by activities or related stories that further stretch the literacy experience!  By integrating the story into other activities such as drawing, letter recognition, fine motor, matching, sorting, and sequencing, you are laying the groundwork for growing a reader in way that is interactive and fun!
