Where has my little dog gone? and Birthdays!

Welcome back to storytime, everyone!!! After a couple of weeks off, Toddler Tales is “back in business”.  It’s so good to see familiar smiling faces again. This week, we did a storytime about birthdays and doggies, too. We also handed out our new Winter Rhyme sheet with new rhymes and songs for this season. I also told everyone about this new website blog where you can find out what happened at storytime every week. This will be a good resource to remember favorite songs and stories. Extra rhyme sheets and coloring sheets can always be picked up at the library. In the future, I would also like to use this website to share some early literacy tips as well as sound recordings of traditional rhymes and stories. Enjoy! I hope to see all my friends soon Friday mornings over at the Burbank Central Library…
