SPRING! It's still a bit chilly outside, but we are all about SPRING here in the library these days. The bulletin boards have gone from frosty white snowflakes, to bright, warm and colorful displays. Storytime themes are bugs and flowers and bunnies and my favorite today... clouds.
It Looks Like Spilt Milk, by Charles G. Shaw is a librarian favorite. Who doesn't dream of lying back in the thick, green grass and watching the over-fluffed summer clouds float by? Today we are going to use our imaginations to do just that (indoors, of course). Shapes are fun for kids. I love how they interpret what they see..which is why I'm also including Duck! Rabbit! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal on the iPad in Tumblebooks. Is it a duck? Is it a rabbit? A good librarian will never tell....
We'll wrap it up with our "kites are flying" song with scarves and have ourselves a sunny good spring-time morning here in the library today and ignore the stubborn snowflakes (shocker!) still falling outside. Happy Spring to you all!
No, not the book (although it happens to be a storytime favorite of mine). I caught the FLU! Aaaaachoooo! Oh the fever! Oh the aches! Oh it was awful!! Days passed in a blur of chicken soup and tea (bleh) and I couldn't even pick up my head, let alone a book from the stack that sits waiting. I thought of Felicity Floo and the importance of keeping your germs to yourself. I tried really hard to isolate myself... I'm hoping none of my family gets it from me. Thankfully, I returned to work today feeling a lot better. We have great things in store for 2015. Felicity will definately be coming to storytime soon....
