Preschool Story Time, 2/1/17

For this story time, I again planned without a theme, and I was very happy with the results. I think this is the best story time I've done for this group since starting back in November and maybe even the best I've done since leaving the library. There were nine kids in all: three 3-year-olds, three 2-year-olds, and three one-year-olds, and they all seemed to really enjoy themselves.

Opening Song: Story Time is Starting

Book: Kitten's First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes
There was one mom who seemed to really get this book and enjoy it. It was hard to tell what everyone else thought.

Song: Moon Moon Moon
The punchline at the end of this song about the moon looking like a pizza always gets a laugh and it did on this day as well.

Book: Hi, Pizza Man! by Virginia Kahl, illustrated by Ponder Goembel
I found this book at a used bookstore, and bought it for story time based on the recommendations of other librarians. This was my first time reading it, and it was everything I expected. The kids loved greeting the different pizza deliverers, especially the dinosaur.

Song: This is the Way We Make a Pizza

Songs with Shaker Eggs:

Song with Puppet: Mr. Sun
During this song, my own daughter incited the other children to run and dance through the room. To calm them, I finished the song with a game of "Mr. Sun Says", in which I informed the children of actions Mr. Sun wanted them to take. It worked like a charm to get them all sitting down again. 

Book: The Doorbell Rang by Pat Hutchins 

Book: Over in the Meadow by Ezra Jack Keats

Song: Chickadee
