Storytime: Libraries

Happy National Library Week!

We are reading:

book jacket Lola at the Library

book jacket Book! Book! Book!

book jacket The Best Time to Read

book jacket Read It, Don’t Eat It!

We are singing:

Let’s Take a Look at This Book

Let’s take a look at this book (Open hands like a book)

Here is the cover (Point to top hand)

We open it wide (Open hands up)

Here are the pages hidden inside (Wiggle fingers)

There are words and pictures (Point to hand like reading)

We look and we look (Look at hands)

And when we are finished

We close up the book. (Close hands up)

We are making:

Books!  Fold a piece of paper in half, and let your child draw pictures or write the story.  If they cannot write yet, have them dictate the words to you after they draw the pictures.  Make sure they share their book with family and friends!

Be sure to:

Talk about how a librarian is a community helper!

  • Let your children take turns playing library at home.  Talk about the job a librarian does.
  • A librarian sorts books.  Have your child practice with sorting and classifying their toys.
  • Collect books for your library!  Check Goodwill or thrift stores for books you may want to donate to the library.  Does your child have a favorite book to read?  Donate that book to the library too!

Happy Reading, and be sure to thank your librarian this week!

They say the darndest things.

Mama Kat gave us a dandy writing prompt this week:

Write a list of things kids say that adults can’t get away with.

I could only think of a couple, so I asked my Facebook friends:


Well, my dear friends came through. BOY. Did they come through! I dare you not to laugh while reading this.

  • Are you having a baby?!
  • Who farted?
  • My butt itches.
  • Her butt is biiigg.
  • Mommy, that man is brown.
  • I gotta poop really bad.
  • You’re getting wrinkles on your face.
  • My butt hurts.
  • My PP itches.
  • I gotta go wee-wee.
  • Are you a boy or girl?
  • That man acts like a girl.
  • What happened to his arm?
  • Why does Grandpa smell like pee?
  • She’s a girl, she has a vagina.
  • She smells funny.
  • Why is that boy trying to look like a girl?
  • My butt itches…now my fingers are stinky.
  • What’s wrong with that person?
  • I have to go poopy.
  • Why does that woman have a mustache?
  • Why does that man have no legs?
  • What are those funny lines on your tummy?
  • If the baby is only the size of an apple, why are you so fat?
