It is never too early to introduce your child to concepts they’ll need for creative, mathematical and scientific thinking later on! To help, New York Public Library has launched a new resource for families to enjoy this summer: Online STEAM Storytime.

STEAM, short for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math, provides fun ways to explore topics like the five senses, movement, color, sound, and so much more! Each Online STEAM Storytime features a story, songs, rhymes, and an activity. Each video is accompanied by a one-page guide that explains how to do the activity, thoughtful questions to extend learning, and explore STEAM concepts at home.

New STEAM Storytimes are released every Monday, Wednesday and Friday all summer long. Click here to watch STEAM Storytimes and download activity guides here.
