Looking for a unique way for the youngest learners in your family to learn the alphabet, numbers, colors, or other basic concepts!
What are play and learn kits and what do I need to know about checking them out?
Research tells us that there are five basic literacy skills that help children learn to read and learn– read, write, sing, talk and play. The Play and Learn Kits offer young children an avenue to practice their logical thinking, problem-solving, and gross and fine motor skills by using one of the five basic literacy skills – play.
Interactive play makes learning fun. With the Play & Learn kits for ages 3 and up, early learners can engage with rhymes, colors, numbers and more to stimulate learning!
Contents of each kit are listed in the catalog. Kits must be returned to any branch during open hours, as they do not fit in book returns.
