The Coronavirus pandemic has changed how families live their lives. For some, there’s been more time at home and not as many outings for children. Enter – Join the Story Box! Now more than ever, it’s the perfect time to subscribe or gift a subscription to a friend or family member. Here’s why.
In our city, most libraries are still closed due to COVID-19. My daughter and I sure are missing the fun of going to the library and picking out a new book every couple weeks. But with Join the Story Box, we’re able to stay safe at home and the stories come delivered to us. When Olivia sees the Join the Story Box package at the door each month, she gets SO excited.
As a busy parent, it can be challenging to find the time to go to the store or search online for the best books for your child’s age. Some local libraries are offering book reservations and curbside pickups but again, that can be difficult to fit into a parent’s day. When you’re subscribed to Join the Story Box, you can rest assured you’ll be able to cross the many items off your daily list while also providing your child with a new, educational experience every month!
The books that come in your Join the Story Box package have been carefully chosen based on your child’s age and due to the educational concepts they include! As a first time parent, or for any parent, it can be hard at times to know what the best activities or books are for your child. Join the Story Box takes the guess work out of that. Children’s interest in toys come and go. Books are one of the best investments you can make because of the countless educational benefits they provide to your child, including boosting vocabulary, speech and language skills, and later literacy skills!
And More Pros for Parents!
The Parent Guide included in each package is so very valuable for parents. Right now, many parents are able to spend more one on one time with their children due to some children enrolling in virtual school and parents working from home temporarily. Take advantage of this time with your child and become one of the primary educators in their lives! By reading and following the tips and activity ideas on the parent guide (written by a pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist (me!)), you can learn how to make the most of being home with your child by incorporating speech and language stimulation strategies into everyday routines!
