We are dedicated to the important service of helping children develop a love of words, stories, books and music. Our curriculum supports and enriches young children’s early literacy education through our classic storyplays and our unique Book Shop collection.
Want to meet some great characters? When last have you quacked like Duck or gobbled like Turkey or snickered gleefully as Itsy Bitsy Spider gets washed down the spout again and again?
We will have you and your little one playing with sounds, catching and tossing words, reading, rhyming and singing all day long!
Attend our outdoor storyplays in the Greater Philadelphia area.
Make the most of your child’s screen time with our thoughtful, engaging and enriching content in our Virtual Village.
Subscribe to the first podcast made expressly for babies, from newborn - 2 years. Small Talk Baby Podcast - available wherever you find your podcasts.
Storyplays bring language alive and make learning fun!

Our Village offers a curated video collection in all the categories and themes that matter to families with young children.
We value diversity and inclusion and firmly believe that reading (and singing and talking) to our children will change their lives and ours forever.
Select as many subscriptions as you’d like - the more you borrow, the more you save and the more your little one will learn.
Our books are selected by our team: a children's librarian and a passionate book lover, who together have more than
50 years of experience sharing books with children and their families.
Beautiful books about the world and our place in it! Books that make you cry and books to tickle your funny bone; books with things that go, or pop or make you want to sing, books to help your little one grow up great on the inside and outside!
We could not be more pleased at the enthusiastic response to our new and growing Virtual Village!
