Construction Storytime

This storytime was our Build a Better World Summer Reading Kickoff, and it went really well.  I had good crowds, and most of the kids were very engaged in what I was doing.  During The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, I cued the kids to fake-sneeze as a group when the wolf sneezed in the story.  They loved it!  And in Tip Tip Dig Dig, I asked the kids to stand up with me and mimic the digging, lifting, pushing, etc. motions in the story.  They played along really well and helped make that book be a little more exciting.

Easter Storytime

Technically, this storytime was a little late since Easter was last Sunday, but the kids had a good time nonetheless. They thoroughly enjoyed both of the songs; I will definitely be using "Freeze Dance" again. The Color Monster is an oldie-but-a-goodie that I remember reading as a kid, and it went along perfectly with our craft. I think that the favorite book was probably The Easter Bunny's Assistant which I expected. You can't go wrong with stinky skunks!
