The ABC's of being a children's Librarian

Toddler Storytime 7/11/2011

on July 11, 2011
This weekly meme is an attempt to improve my reader’s advisory skills as well as highlight the great literature out there for kids, and their uses for library story times.
I don’t normally do the Toddler storytime, so today was a special treat for me. The group was fairly small, about 30 kids. I went fora special summer/cooking theme today, using some of my favorite picture books. The kids were really quiet today, it took a while for them to begin participating with the books. They seemed really into the books, especially Fox Tale Soup, one of my personal favorites.
This was today’s routine:
ABC Song
Clap, roll, rub hands (slow then quickly)
If You’d Like to Read a Book – Clap Your Hands
Book 1: Whopper Cake by Karma Wilson
Whopper cake
Once I was an Ice Cream
Apple Tree
If You’d Like to Read a Book – Stomp Your Feet
Book 2: Fox Tale Soup by Tony Bonning

Book 3: Lemons Are Not Red by Laura Vaccaro

Closing Song
If you’re happy and you know it
