Not only did we cover animals that make a splash, we also got in some counting and color identification. It was quite a wonderful and splashy way to end our storytime year and to introduce our “Make a Splash” Summer Reading theme.
It was also a nice ending to my time here in Burbank. I loved being a part of all your lives and will never forget you! Thanks for coming to storytime and for sharing stories, songs, dancing, puppets and bubbles with me.
Feel free to keep in touch (or keep track of me on this blog!), and have the best summer ever!
