Traveling Tales

A unique collection of thematic storytime programs. Each Traveling Tales kit contains a children’s program you check out and take home.

Traveling Tales kits encourage reading readiness and language skills for children ages two through five.  We’ve made it easy for you by collecting books, puppets, songs, craft ideas, snack recipes, a music CD, a DVD, and a flannel board story all related to a theme.

You can borrow up to three kits for three weeks and return them to any Jacksonville library. Kits can be renewed one time.  Traveling Tales can be placed on hold via the library catalog or by contacting the Main Library Children’s Department to request a theme.
