One early literacy reminder we can give in storytime is about reminding parents that it's great to let children pick their own books. I might say something like this: "To want to learn to read, kids have to love reading and be excited about it. One way to foster this with your child is to let him or her help you choose books to read when they are at the library with you. Look together for books on topics your child is interested in and let them decide on some of the books you take home. This will build your child's excitement about reading and help them become a lifelong reader!"
