Kids Corner

Fun kid-friendly activities and websites from across the Internet!


Decorate with books

Use holiday-themed books as part of your decorations this year. A few well-placed books might have your child sitting in the middle of the floor reading before they know it.

cook with books

Let your child pick a cookbook and a recipe! Have your child read it out loud to you. That's reading too.

integrate books into your traditions

Look for books about children cooking, or intergenerational stories that revolve around holidays and cooking with the whole family, parents or grandparents, siblings and cousins. There's no shortage of these books. Not only will they inspire reading, laughter, and good times, they might inspire your child to get in the kitchen and help cook!

oral storytelling

Everybody loves a good story, especially when it comes from your heart. Tell a family story while you're cooking or eating dinner. 


Have fun making up a story so the whole family can join in! Someone starts and everyone adds a line or two. Ask your child to be the scribe. They can write or illustrate. Then your reader can read it to everyone! This is sure to create memories and lots of laughs!
