Browse our new Bake Me a Story picture book collection and companion baking pans!  You may check out any of our new picture books and also a related baking pan to do a reading and baking activity at home with your child.  The new books and baking pans are now a part of the permanent collection at Royersford Free Public Library and are available to patrons on an ongoing basis, using our normal check-out procedures.

The new collection is geared to pre-kindergarten and elementary school children.  Parents play a key role as teachers in developing early literacy skills in children.  Activities such as listening to the story, discussing the story with parents, and baking a cake develop vocabulary, word knowledge, reading enthusiasm, left-to-right/top-to-bottom process skills, narrative skills, letter recognition, and phonetics. The baking activity involves counting, adding, subtracting, fractions, measuring, following directions, estimating, telling time, observing, predicting, weighing, and testing, all of which support math and science skills.

Books and pans can be checked out together or separately. The books all have a list of pan suggestions inside the front cover, but patrons don’t have to stick with those. Patrons must come to the Royersford Free Public Library to check out a pan. They will not be sent to other libraries through the inter-library loan service. We are also asking that patrons bring the pans back to the service desk at the library for check-in and please do not use the outside book drops.

The Bake Me a Story picture books and companion baking pans have been sponsored by a grant from Target Corporation.  We appreciate their support and commitment to education.
