Story Time at the Library

We try to go to pre-school story time at the library every Thursday.  Luke brings his book to read out in the main area while us girls enjoy some stories, along with the "Bean Bag" dance and singing about shaking our "sillies" out.  I love Meg our story time teacher.  She keeps story time pretty routine to help the children feel comfortable and familiar with it, at the same time she adds new songs and activities to keep their interest. Also, every Friday afternoon our library has "Read to a Dog."  About three docile trained dogs are there waiting for children to read them a story.  Isabel loves it.

This week we tried out toddler story time.  Pretty much the same as pre-school story time, except a little simpler.

There is always a craft at the end.  (well, in this case, it was coloring a clown.)

The other cute two year old is Hazel's friend, Ellen!

When it's time to leave, we pick up our order of books and try to get out of there before Hazel can steal too many squirts from the automatic hand sanitizer dispenser.

Pirate Story Time

Yesterday Isabel and and I tied our pirate bandannas on and read two pirate books to a kindergarten class.  How I Became a Pirate by David Shannon and Grandma and the Pirates by Phoebe Gilman.  Isabel got to show the class her treasure map and we had each child tell what they would like to find in a treasure chest (besides gold and jewels.)  Here were some of their answers... -candy! -monster trucks -Littlest Pet Shops -ice cream -a princess dress and my personal favorite... -ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS!!!!!!
