Storytime 2.0

At the beginning of the summer, a local organization approached me about doing a long program for a group of children as a one-time child care service.  I had to plan a storytime for as many as 20 children between the ages of four and seven, and the program needed to last for an hour and a half.  Whew!  This is the program that I came up with.  It doesn't have a particular theme; rather, it's a conglomeration of some of my favorite books, songs, and activities.

Inventions Storytime | Build a Better World

The Most Magnificent Thing is a really great book, and the kids seemed to appreciate and understand it.  For this storytime, I was determined to find a good nonfiction picture book about a famous inventor.  The problem with most picture book biographies is that they tend to be long and wordy.  Long and wordy doesn't usually work for my crowd, so I had to search high and low to find a shorter book.
