Virtual Storytime with PBDA

PBDA Virtual Story time distance learning

One of PBDA’s greatest strengths is our community. While we remain physically apart during these uncertain times, there is no better way to come together than through the power of a good story.

To help our students feel further connected to our teachers and PBDA while we’re apart, we are thrilled to introduce PBDA’s ‘Tell Me A Story,’ a virtual library of read-alouds presented by our faculty and administrators.

From our favorite children’s books to poems and famous speeches, we have created this library to provide our students with an opportunity to spend a few minutes each day with us as we appreciate the power of storytelling.

We will be adding to this virtual library over the next few weeks. Feel free to browse by book title, faculty member, and age appropriateness of the read-aloud.
