What was read for Storytime - Nov. 9, 2012

Miss Tegan (that's me! *waves*) covered for Miss Michelle today as she is at home sick. She's trying to get well so she can return. She's keeping us updated and we're sending "Get Well Wishes" to her. We had a great time though! The crowd today was fantastic. My "theme" was farm animals again. Here's what I read:

Barnyard Banter by Denise Fleming - JJ FLE
The farmyard is noisy today and Goose is checking it out, but where does goose keep hiding? A fun read for those who like making animal noises!

Chicken, Chicken, Duck! by Nadia Krilanovich (checked out from another library)
Duck leads the animals on the farm to a silly ending. What will it be?

Pigs to the Rescue by John Himmelman - JJ HIM
Just like last week's Chickens to the Rescue, the Pigs are now helping the Greenstalk family through their week. The only problem is, are the pigs actually helping or just making things worse?

We sang a few songs as well including "Heads, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes" (which I sped up!) and  "Old MacDonald."

Next week, Miss Michelle will be out again. There will be no story time on Monday and Friday, but the toys will be out. I'll be subbing on Wednesday at 4:30 PM.

Keep on Reading!

What was read for Storytime - Nov. 2, 2012

Miss Tegan (that's me!) subbed in story time today, but everyone who came had a great time! We read silly stories, sang songs, and some stayed after to color. Here was what I read today:

The Duckling Gets a Cookie!? by Mo Willems - JJ WIL
Wait? What? How did the Duckling get a cookie? Pigeon asks for things ALL. THE. TIME. What does he get? NOTHING. So how come this little Duckling gets a cookie? The twist will surprise you and even the very angry Pigeon. Part of the Pigeon series.

Click, Clack, Splish, Splash : a Counting Adventure by Doreen Cronin - JJ CRO
You know the Duck and Farmer Brown from Click, Clack Moo, here is a simple story with the crazy farm animals from the series. Farmer Brown takes a nap, which his animals use at the prime opportunity to go on an adventure! But what is that adventure and how are goldfish involved? Great for practicing counting up to 10 and counting down.

Chickens to the Rescue by John Himmelman - JJ HIM
Too tired to make dinner? Your watch is down the well? Who can help? CHICKENS! Yes, the farm chickens can help with your problems. The most enjoyable part of this book is the two-page spread with the chickens doing the rescuing and the recurring refrain, which children will love to shout. The ending hints at more adventures, but with who? (Book 1 of 3 I've found so far.)

We also sang a few songs including the "ABC Song," "If You Want to Hear a Story..." and "Old MacDonald's Farm" which had a pig, a duck, a cow, and a chicken.

Thank you for coming and we hope to see you at our other story times!
