This past Tuesday at story time we made bracelets. They turned out so cute, and I had a little surprise for the kids. They each got a brand new beanie baby! Thanks to my wonderful sister Sandra for donating a whole box of brand new toys. Yeah! But the fun didn't stop there; We read some fantastic books too.
It's brains versus brawn in this hilarious picture book, and the results surprise everyone. Except, perhaps, those darn squirrels. Those Darn Squirrels and the Cat Next Door by Adam Rubin will have you wanting to get a pet squirrel, maybe.
Which animal has the most dangerous bottom? Which animal gets scratches on its bottom by rubbing it on tree trunks and termite mounds? Read Whose Bottom Is This? By Wayne Lynch and have fun identifying who owns the bottoms in this book.
Whether getting eye-to-eye with a hippopotamus or nose-to-nose with a bison, there's not a zoo in the world where readers can get as close to the animals as they do in More Life-Size Zoo by Teruyuki Komiya. This series is one of my all time favorites so check it out. You won't believe your eyes.
I can't believe we only have two story times left! Please join the fun, we make a craft at every story time, munch on healthy snacks, and of course, we read great books!
