Goldilocks and the Three Bears

ROAR! Did I scare you??? Didn’t think so. Every now and then, I go over to the Buena Vista Branch Library to do a special Saturday morning storytime geared towards early elementary kids. Today, I presented a “beary” fun Goldilocks and the Three Bears storytime. We went on a bear hunt, we sang songs, we listen to and acted out some bear stories, and we even watched a silly Bugs Bunny and the Three Bears cartoon. The kids were a blast, and I even had one child comment that I was the best librarian ever! How precious. I love being a li-BEAR-ian:) I’ll post some pictures on my Storytime Flickr Photos soon!
