StorySacks in Action [Video – 2:28] (2009)

A storysack consists of a book with props, games and ideas for activities to engage children in reading. This video shows a little boy discovering Eric Carle’s “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” through a storysack.

The adult reading the book aloud uses toy food items from the sack to keep the toddler’s attention. As well, she pauses frequently to let the boy respond to the story.

This video accompanies another one entitled “StorySacks,” which shows this particular sack being assembled. To see that video, please click here:
