Being a children’s librarian is a whole lot of fun, especially when I get to lead storytime! The reason I made friends with the fellas at Bookboard in the first place was because I wanted to use some of their books in my storytimes. It turned out they were all really friendly guys with a love for books, and I ended up working with them to help manage the Bookboard library.<!–more–>

When I’m not working on Bookboard things, however, I work with libraries, library associations, advocacy groups and early childhood educators to develop best practices for using digital media in early literacy programming (often that’s preschool storytime)! I usually use an AppleTV to project my stories either through a TV or projector, and there is a whole movement of librarians, early childhood educators and storytellers who are beginning to do this in preschools, daycare centers, libraries, children’s museums, community centers and other venues. Finding high-quality digital books and other media for use in this kind of program can be tricky, though, and often storytellers are on the hunt for recommendations for gems to share with the families in their communities. ?I’ve put together a collection of books that we have in the Bookboard library that work well in storytime. If you’re a storyteller just starting out with using digital books in your programs, check out my community of motivated children’s librarians at <a href="http://littleelit.com/">LittleeLit.com</a>.

Here are some benefits to using digital books in storytime:
<ol>
<li>You can make them very large (ie as big as your screen)</li>
<li>Your hands can be free to do fingerplays or actions within the story (normally your hands are holding the book and panning it around the room; with a prjected version of the book, you can put down your iPad and have both hands free!)</li>
<li>You can share high-quality books with kids and families who might not know where to find them otherwise</li>
</ol>
Take a look at some of these books, and if you use them in your storytimes, we’d love to hear how it went!
