LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — UNLV has created a "story time" resource for children and families amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The university's College of Education is creating read-aloud videos to recreate storytime for kids virtually while libraries and schools stay closed.
An online library of nearly 50 stories is available, along with other videos and resources for parents and teachers, with new videos uploaded daily.

UNLV student teachers and professors and people from across the world read stories like "Enemy Pie," "The Lorax" and "Goodnight Moon."
The project not only provides resources for families, but it also helps student teachers complete their requirements for licensure.
"Parents, on top of worrying about work and potential unemployment, have been thrust into the role of teacher," Kenny Varner, associate professor of literacy, said in a release. "And teachers don’t have access to their classroom libraries, so this helps them access a wider variety of books."
