How to Prepare

Plan early: 



Top 10 Storytime Tips

1. Use an expressive voice - Change the volume and tone of your voice to reflect the things that are happening in the story, or use different voices for different characters.

2. Read the books ahead of time - Make sure you are comfortable reading the books you have chosen, that you can pronounce all the words, and that you can get the pace of the wording right.

3. Make eye contact - Be comfortable enough with the book to look at your audience as you read - it will keep them engaged.
