Drop-In Story Time, 11/16/12 (Family Theme)

Book: My Mom and Me by Alyssa Satin Capucilli
The flaps on the pages of this book were awkward for me to handle. I'd have to memorize the text, I think, to use it again effectively.

Mommy’s Glasses / Daddy’s Glasses (based on Here Are Grandma's Glasses)

Book: Dad and Pop: An Ode to Fathers and Stepfathers by Kelly Bennett
Surprisingly, this one wasn't well-received. I'm not quite sure why. 

Where is Thumbkin? (family edition)

Book: One Special Day by Lola Schaefer
This is such a sweet picture book about new siblings. It's the only one in this bunch that was checked out at the end of story time, and the mom told me she was going to read it to her son who is a new big brother!

Flannel Board Rhyme:
Knock Knock, Who's There?
Presentation is key with this one. I haven't had great luck with it in the past, but today, there was so much applause we did it a second time!
Book: Do Like Kyla by Angela Johnson
I didn't think most people were listening by this point and wondered whether the fourth book was one too many, but then I heard a few awws from some adults and looked up to see several kids staring at the book with rapt attention. Not everyone was listening, but some people obviously enjoyed it, and I'm trying to remember that this is the important thing.

Here We Go Up Up

Letter of the Day: Letter N
Songs with ukulele: ABCs / Twinkle Twinkle Little Star / Baa Baa Black Sheep
Song with ukulele: Itsy Bitsy Spider

Song: If You're Happy and You Know It

Song: Rum Sum Sum

I use the same hello and goodbye songs at almost every session. Click here for the tunes and words. For descriptions of each of my story times, click here.
