New summer story alert!

Submitted by madeline on Fri, 05/27/2022 - 03:20 PM PDT

We have a new story to share with you, just in time for Summer Reading. 

In A Camping Trip: From City to Nature by Lauren Kratz Prushko, three friends from the city go camping for the first time. Together they learn to pitch a tent, hike in the wood, and make s'mores under the stars. This title may be of particular interest to libraries using iRead’s Read Beyond the Beaten Path theme.

 We have a story in the works for all you CSLP Oceans of Possibility folks, too. More soon!

Story Sheets

To support your efforts connecting families with stories and information, we offer our members Story Sheets– read-along printables– on demand!

 If you would like to share a PDF version of a story in the Commons, submit a contact form to request the read-along you would like us to create: Please include your name and the title(s) you’d like. As we create Story Sheets, we will upload them to the Commons and make them available to everyone.

Outreach tip– print Story Sheets that match your scheduled recording and attach a sticker with your Dial-A-Story phone number. Hand them out at outreach events to promote your Dial-A-Story service, inviting families to call and read-along at home.

Wishing you all a safe and reflective Memorial Day weekend!


A Camping Trip, our newest story, pairs perfectly with iRead's Read Beyond the Beaten Path theme. We also offer our members printable Story Sheets and a Summer Reading outreach tip.
