wowwwww it has been awhile since I last blogged! I have been busy with SRP and we took a storytime break for all of May and half of June but we are in the swing of things again! Our first storytime this summer was PLAY! At the library we love reading and books but we also love Play :)
Silly Play Picture Books
Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown
Where is the Green Sheep? by Mem Fox
Tap the Magic Tree by Christie Matheson
|Count the Monkeys by Mac Barnett, illus by Kevin Cornell
All of these books were perfect! Some other books you could do are:
Can You Make a Silly Face by Jan Thomas
Not a Box by Antoinette Portis
It’s a Tiger! by David LaRochelle, illus. by Jeremy Tankard
Oh, No! by Candace Fleming, illus. by Eric Rohmann
Chloe and the Lion by Mac Barnett, illus. by Adam Rex
Silly Play Songs
Any silly song from Laurie Berkner is perfect for this theme. We did The Goldfish Song!
Herman the Worm is also my go to song, and will work especially well for the pre-school and school age crowd. Instead of eating parents/grandparents I have Herman eat library books, my car, the library, etc..
Instead of a craft at the end of this storytime we did the parachute! For some awesome parachute ideas check out Kendra’s blog!
All in all this was a very fun storytime! This was planned right on the heels of the tragic news out of Orlando so it was great for me, and probably the adults in the room, to just play and laugh and have fun for a little bit.
