Phew! I finally uploaded some cute pics from Toddler Tales Storytime as well as from my recent Goldilocks and the Three Bears Super Saturday Stories program. Check them out at my Storytime Flickr Photos (under Links). Enjoy the memories!
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!
