School librarians can enrich and enliven storytime and engage students with digital storytime. Kids are growing up in this digital world and don't see the difference between digital books and traditional books. Using digital books can revitalize traditional storytime. This article provides tables comparing traditional storytime with digital storytime and links to recommended titles and sources.
