Pajama Story Time, 8/1/12

Last week's Pajama Story Time attracted a pretty decent audience - 6 kids altogether, I think - but they were of such disparate ages if was hard to keep them engaged. The first book was great; the others were a bit of a struggle.

Opening Song: Hello, how are you?

Book: What's Looking at You, Kid? by J. Patrick Lewis, illustrated by Renee Graef (2012)
This was the hit of the session. All of the kids enjoyed naming the animals - even the biggest ones.

Book: Alice the Fairy by David Shannon (2004)
This is shockingly not a great read-aloud, and especially not for such a mixed age group. 

Song: Moon Moon Moon

Book: The Moon by Robert Louis Stevenson, illustrated by Tracey Pearson Campbell (2006)

Song: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Book: A Summery Saturday Morning by Margaret Mahy, illustrated by Selina Young (1998)
I still think I could make the repetition and rhythm of this book work for me, but it didn't on this particular day. 

Goodbye Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This
