On every page of the book a different tool makes a different noise. I’ll make this interactive by having the kids repeat the sounds.
Sensory Story Time Books
This is exactly what I look for in a book for sensory story time! Every page is interactive with instructions for the kids to follow like, “stick out your tongue and touch your nose,” and “close your eyes and count to four.”
There are a few I’ll leave out, like “do a somersault across the floor” because I can just see one of the kiddos kicking another and “I’ll tickle you if you tickle me,” since we are trying to learn personal space. Overall a wonderful book, but read it ahead of time to tailor it to your audience!
I love books that have sounds in them for sensory story time. I encourage the kids to repeat the sounds to make it an interactive experience. This one has different sounds on every page.
This is one of my favorite books for Sensory Story Time! The kids love to mimic the animals and adore the brightly colored pictures. Just make sure you spread the kids out so they don’t accidentally hit or kick each other. I always use this book as an opportunity to talk about personal space.
And yes, I even let them do the donkey, but if you have a lot of kids in a small space you might want to skip it!
This is a good one if you are trying to have a story time with diversity- the kids in this book are all different colors!
This is a super fun book that I’ve used multiple times in my Sensory Story Time. The kids just seem to pay attention better when I sing a book to them instead of reading it. When I do this book I let the kids shake some quiet maracas to the beat.
Of course, this is also a great book for inclusion because there is a group of multicultural children parading through the town, each with a different musical instrument.
