Very Young Children (birth - 5 years)
Whether for collaboration with a teacher colleage, sending materials to a daycare in need, or helping a harried mother keep her children occupied on a cross-country road trip, assembling book kits is an enjoyable component of a librarian's job. During my program, I created a princess kit for children five and under. For older children, I shifted to a less gender-specific topic, creating book and activity kids for both older and younger children on the fascinating world of insects.
