December is Read a New Book Month storytime
To honor the theme of Read a New Book Month, I chose to...not read a new book. Ok, I decided to read a few of my favorite picture books. Yeah, they aren't new books, but I can't help my lack of creativity when it comes to storytime. Anyway, The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle was our first book. Then, we made our very own hungry caterpillars by gluing pom-poms to popsicle sticks with pipe cleaner antennae and goggley eyes. While we waited for our caterpillars to dry a bit, we read Bark, George by Jules Feiffer and one of my very favorites, Owen & Mzee: Best Friends. Twas another successful storytime, indeed.
