Story Time Theme: Extreme Interaction

8 May

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!  This was my last story time for the spring session and I won’t have story time with these kids in the library again until the end of June.  It’s always a little sad to see the kids leave, but I am in need of a much-needed break, so that I can focus all my energy on getting ready for Summer Reading!  I realized this week that it’s already May and I only have a few short weeks to have everything ready!  (I’m only freaking out a little bit!)  The kids in my yoga story time were especially rowdy today, which means these stories were perfect!
