Family Storytime Theme: Winter Clothing

26 Feb

I am so impressed with this group of kids, I’ve chosen some longer books and they will sit through them!  The kids were absolutely giggling over Froggy Gets Dessed this morning and love doing our wiggle song, “Zoom, Zoom, Zoom” and really liked jumping to Jim Gills’s “Jumping & Counting” song.  And after storytime a little girl came up to my desk and asked me if I was feeling better (I had to cancel storytime last week due to a stomach virus).  She asked mom to call the library on Monday to see if I was feeling better, which just about melted my heart!  Kids can be the sweetest!  Overall, a great storytime and looking forward to the weekend!
