the storytime ventures of a children's librarian

Big and Bad Storytime

Did my first partnered storytime this week with the lovely Natalie, who has just joined our Library team. It was loads of fun, and our big crowd had a great time. =]

Opening: Shake My Sillies Out – Raffi

Book: Scary Mary – Paula Bowles

(Such personality in this book! I love the illustrations and layout.)

Activity: Little Miss Muffet – Traditional

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet,

eating her curds and whey.

Along came a spider that sat down besider her,

and frightened Miss Muffet away!

 (Used a girl and spider puppet, and after a few times through …the kids can’t get enough… Miss Muffet karate chops the spider and scares it away!)

Book: The Gruffalo – Julia Donaldson

(This worked fantastically as a partnered read. Natalie did all the mouse bits and I did the rest. )

Activity: The Troll – from the CD Animal Songs by Jim Gill

 (After the mouse took a walk and met the scary Gruffalo, we pretended to go on a walk and met a scary Troll! Simple song to follow the actions of, the kids loved it!) 

Book: Solomon Crocodile – Catherine Rayer

(I adore Rayner’s books, this one does not disappoint! Solomon loves to scare, but the Hippo isn’t having it …until Solomon finds a friend.)

Activity: Three Little Pigs – Traditional

(With the addition of a wolf puppet, these were the props. Worked great, and the kids love huffing and puffing with the wolf.)

Book: It’s a Tiger! – David LaRochelle

 its-a-tiger

(Such a fun engaging book. Tankard always has such bright illustrations, and the repeated theme really sucked the kids in.)

Activity: Streamers

(In the jungle the boy walked passed monkeys hanging from vines, so the streamers were our vines! Not really, the kids just danced around with them, but I can pretend it fits the theme!) ~.o
