The Little Sprouts Book Club tubs are perfect for baby and toddler “book clubs” either in a home or childcare setting. Each child and caregiver will have the same book to read along with the other children and their caregivers in the group. A book club for infants and toddlers is an opportunity for young children to have hands-on experience with print materials,to hear and learn new words, and to develop their conceptual thinking.

The Center has 10 Little Sprouts Book Club tubs. Each tub contains:

  • 10 identical board books
  • 10 baby-appropriate toys (shaker eggs, bean bags, etc.)
  • A guide with early literacy tips and activities for adults

Notes

  • Tubs are not themed; each tub contains the same 10 books, but the included toys may or may not match the theme of the included book.
  • Little Sprouts tubs are loaned for 3 weeks. Tubs are renewable.
  • If sent to a location outside Anchorage, the loan period is six weeks.

Suggestions For Using the Little Sprouts Tubs

  • Announce the title, author, and illustrator.
  • Read the book twice.
    • When reading the first time:
      • Read the words slowly so that the children have a chance to look at all the details on the page.
      • Pause so that children have a chance to turn the page.
    • When reading the second time:
      • Let the caregivers and children repeat songs, lines, identify animals, count objects, etc.
