This week’s storytime theme is bugs.
Bob Barner is another storytime favorite. This book is no exception. Its a very good compliment to I Love Bugs, although I wonder if its too repetitive? Either way, its a quick, short look at bugs, perfect for the baby age range, while I Love Bugs is more appropriate for the toddlers. Its a good compromise for my mixed up storytime audience. The images are very eye-catching, with bright illustrations. Although this book is rather small in size, the colors stand out so that people can see the images in the back. I tend to lean towards larger books because my storytimes have such a large crowd. The the story is concise enough to keep everyone’s attention.
I kept my same selection of songs, although this week I added Here is the Beehive.
Here is the Beehive, (make a fist, tuck thumb inside)
But where are the bees?
Hidden inside where nobody sees.
Here they come out of the hive (pop out thumb)
One Two Three Four Five (pop out remaining fingers)
