Do you have a child under 5 who loves reading?


Reading is a great way to help your children learn new words and ideas.

Salford Speech and Language and Salford Libraries have been working together to help you to  s-t-re-t-c-h your children’s thinking when you are sharing books together .

Based on some of your favourite Storytime books, we have developed age-appropriate questions to help get the most from these stories, including activity suggestions that can be done at home. Children love hearing familiar stories, so you can read the same books again and again!

What’s more ‘Storytime’ will help you to make a story relevant to children of different ages.

Please download and print the pdfs in the sidebar to use at home.


We hope to develop more fun resources soon!
