One More Story

In cooperation with the Norwalk Early Childhood Office and the Norwalk Early Childhood Council, L’il Critters Preschool is pleased to offer all families access to a wonderful digital library, One More Story.   The digital library pairs high-quality children’s books with engaging narrative, music and sound effects.  Along with emphasizing reading as something fun to do, the program also builds vocabulary and relates the spoken to the written word.  This won’t replace teachers and parents reading to their children but will serve to enhance the children’s experience. 

This initiative is offered at no cost to you.  It is funded through the Norwalk Early Childhood Council (NECC) by the United Way of Coastal Fairfield County.  Teachers will use the program in the classroom to support their instruction as you enjoy sharing books at home with your child. 

Log onto from any device to preview the program and view a sample story.  We hope that you’ll enjoy this very engaging story with your child.  Please sign up for the program with your child’s teacher.  We are in the process of setting up the school’s account and will keep you informed about the program’s start date.
