Books & Libraries Storytime

This storytime was for a visiting preschool class here at my library, after a tour of the building. I wanted to educate them on all things library!

Read Aloud Books

Read It, Don't Eat It!Written and illustrated by by Ian Schoenherr

Now you have the book, what should you do with it? A list of rules in a way, but with a fantastic rhythm and rhyme scheme. It was the perfect way to talk about how we treat our books at the library.

We Are in a Book! Written and illustrated by Mo Willems

A reader is reading us! How fun! But what will happen when the book ends?? Yes, yes, I found another reason to use my favorite book. It's cute and hilarious. The kids enjoyed it. And it makes sense with the flannel I chose today.

The animals on the farm are bored! When they see a bunch of happy people coming from the library, they decide to try it out. So this one is just sort of silly, but it did get some chuckles at the end.

Songs & Rhymes

Song: If You're a Reader
(Tune: If you're happy and you know it)
If you're a reader and you know it, clap your hands
If you're a reader and you know it, clap your hands
If you're a reader and you know it, 
and you really want to show it
If you're a reader and you know it, clap your hands

And because we read Book, Book, Book...

Games & Activities

Felt: Where's Piggie?

Craft: Bookmarks

Credit due to Storytime Katie, which is where I found the link to Elizabeth Dulemba's clipart, but here's the bookmark the kids got to color at the end. They also got some old Summer Reading Program stickers and colored pencils. It was well-received.
