I took a no-frills approach to this story time today - tried and true books and familiar songs. I wish I could say it worked, but... this was another chaotic (kids screaming and running, adults talking over me, etc.) Monday program.
Here is what we did. I don't have time to discuss each book this time around, but most were well-received, except the last one.

Song: If You'd Like to Read a Book
