Storytime To Go Kits

Bring the storytime experience into your home

in Aitkin, Chisago, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs, and Pine Counties

Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, daycare provider, or anyone who works with children, the Storytime to Go Kits provide you with all the necessary materials needed to spend some quality reading time with a child.  Storytime to Go kits make it easy for you to foster the love of reading in a child.

The kits were created for use with children ages 2 to 5 to promote early literacy development.

Each themed kit contains:

  • five picture books
  • a children’s music CD
  • a manipulative (educational game, a puppet, puzzle, felt set, etc.)
  • an Early Child Ready to Read activity sheet.


The activity sheet provides examples of how to incorporate each of the five early literacy skills – read, write, sing, talk, and play – with the contents of the kit.

5 children's books on the theme Careers, a construction worker puppet, and a music CD sit on a countertop.
