Opening Song: Hello, how are you?
Wink, the Ninja Who Wanted to Nap by J.C. Phillips (2011)
This is such a fun story - now I definitely want to seek out the first book, Wink, the Ninja Who Wanted to be Noticed. Everything about this book is entertaining. The colorful illustrations, made from all types of paper, are interesting to look at, and filled with creativity, and the story- about a famous ninja who just wants some time to himself - was unique and appealing to both boys and girls. There were also just enough ninja-related scenes to keep kids who love action from being disappointed. Love it!
Song: Rum Sum Sum (a cappella)
Book: Hunwick's Egg by Mem Fox, illustrated by Pamela Lofts (2005)
I repeated the same presentation of this book that I did for the pre-K class last week, and it was another success. My favorite prediction came from the little girl who said, "Maybe whatever's in the egg can't hatch because it can't move!" I love the way kids' minds work!
Song: Taba Naba by The Wiggles
I had a request to repeat this one, so we did!
Song: Boots by the Laurie Berkner Band
Princess Hyacinth: The Surprising Tale of a Girl Who Floated by Florence Parry Heide, illustrated by Lane Smith (2009)
Another favorite from my early days at this library. They all loved to hear about the princess's royal underwear.
This story time took exactly 30 minutes (and I didn't even have a clock!)
