Does your library use checkout kits? Checkout kits bundle reading, play and family time into one easy step. WY Quality Counts has two new kits—free to your library—to add to your collection.
The kits feature The Search for Jack, a children’s book about two friends, Chuck the Beaver and Pepper the Meadowlark, exploring Wild Wyoming together to find the mysterious jackalope. As Chuck and Pepper search for Jack, they model basic scientific investigation skills for children, including questioning, finding clues, making observations and reaching a conclusion.
Each kit contains a hardcover copy of The Search for Jack, a hand puppet, and other supporting activities and materials that families will love so much you’ll have trouble keeping it on the shelf!
WY Quality Counts developed The Search for Jack kits in consultation with storytellers and librarians at Laramie County Library System, advisers from the Wyoming Library Association, and early childhood experts from the University of Wyoming. WY Quality Counts has very limited quantities of this free resource. Please order right away to ensure your patrons don’t miss out: wyqualitycounts.org/storybook-kit-order-form
