the storytime ventures of a children's librarian

Sometimes I feel…

on August 20, 2013

(We’ve just started doing two person storytime programs, which certainly helps with an average of 40 children at each program, and it’s been loads of fun exploring this new dynamic!)

Opening: Shake My Sillies Out – Raffi

Book: My Friend is Sad – Mo Willems


(Can’t go wrong with Mo Willems, and having us each with a book reading the different parts ads to the fun!)

Puppet: Sam’s Cookie – from the book by Barbro Lindgren


(Sam get’s a cookie, but then doggie comes and wants the cookie. Presents a wonderful range of emotions!)

(We presented this just as scripted first, then did it again with the kids identifying each emotion Sam was feeling. Fun!)

Book: Never Too Little To Love – Jeanne Willis


(A sweet book with a fun format, the stacking items and pop-up kiss are good engagers.)

Song/Activity: If you’re happy and you know it

(The traditional song with whatever emotions the kids suggested thrown in! Nervous almost threw me off, be we held out breath for that.)

Book: The Day Leo Said I Hate You! – Robie H Harris


(So vibrant and raw with it’s portrayal, I love it! I read for Leo, and Amber read the Mothers parts.)

Flannel Board: Little Miss Muffet – Traditional


(The kids love hearing Miss Muffet scream! We did this a few times.)

Book: It’s a Tiger – David LaRochelle


(The kids were brave with the spider, so then we went on an adventure with a tiger! Another great vibrant book.)

Activity: Streamers

(Then we played with streamers, like the ‘jungle vines’ of the last story.
