Read Alouds at Camp

7 Aug

11233988 Today I had one of those great experiences as a librarian that makes me love my job and right now, it was definitely needed as we still have a few more weeks of book recording and a handful of programs still to go!  I went to a summer camp that we visit for outreach and got to hang out with both 5 – 6 year olds as well as 7 – 8 year olds.  The 5 – 6 year olds did well, but the 7 – 8 year olds blew me out of the water!

I read six books to them and they asked for more!  It was so fun, the kids were really enjoying the books, talking about what was happening, laughing, interacting… it was so nice to see!  We also created Sticky Note Birds, but the kids by far, had fun listening to these great read alouds!

We read:

  • The Book With No Pictures by B.J. Novak
  • This Book Just Ate My Dog! by Richard Byrne
  • I Want My Hat Back by Jon KlassenThis-is-Not-My-Hat-cover
  • This Is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen
  • More Bears! by Kenn Nesbitt
  • Is Everyone Ready for Fun? by Jan Thomas
