MMMilk and Cookies!

Today was our final Milk and Cookies storytime for the summer. I thought it only appropriate that I tell a “batch” of cookie stories :) I was especially happy to finally be able to read Karma Wilson’s The Cow Loves Cookies at storytime… it was a hit!

We will be having more storytimes at Panera in the fall. Dates will be posted on the Library website soon!

In the mean time, I will repeat this storytime over at the Gail Borden Library tomorrow at 10:15 am in the Youth Services patio area. No registration required! Next week, I’ll be repeating my Let’s Cook Up Some Fun storytime same time, same place.

*Mix the Batter
Mix the batter, stir the batter,
(curve one arm to make a bowl; pretend to stir with other hand)
Shake some flour in.
(stirring hand shakes over “bowl” arm)
Mix the batter, stir the batter,
(repeat first movement)
Pour it in a tin.
(hold up bowl in two hands; tip)
Then sprinkle little raisins on
(make sprinkling motion with one hand)
Put batter in to bake.
(Two hands out as if holding cake pan)
Open up the over door.
(opening motion with one hand)
Out comes a delicious cake!
(Two hands out as if holding cake pan; lift pan to nose and take deep sniff!)

**The Quiet Mouse
Once there lived a quiet mouse
(Hold out fist with index finger extended)
In a quiet little house.
(Insert index finger into other fist)
When all was quiet as can be,
Out Popped He!!
(Throw arms and hands apart)
