No, not even yesterday’s snow stopped story time! And yes, I’m so glad I woke up at 5am to clear the snow so I could do it again at 8.
Books We Read
Kiddos were entranced by the simple story of Peter and his snowy day. The best part was watching the kids look at the book, then out the window, then back to the book, then out the window as they slowly realized that like Peter, they were having their very own snowy day.
This is a story time fav – cows and hens who strike for better working conditions and a farmer smart enough to know when he should negotiate. Added bonus – kiddos learn “big” words like furious and ultimatum – concepts with which they (and their parents) are all too familiar.
The perfect book for the holidays…when all of those lovely Amazon boxes appear on your doorstep and you wonder what you can do with them. Well, they can be a race car, a robot, a time machine (big fav in our house), a dinosaur catcher…
One of my musically inclined parents upped the ante on this book and started reading Pete in different rock star voices. You haven’t lived until you’ve heard his versions of Prince, Bob Dylan and Axl Rose singing “I love my red shoes.”
The next Kiddos & Books Story Time will be Saturday, January 4, 2014 – 9:30am
