Family Storytime Theme: Cookies

5 Mar

family_cookies

Although I had a fairly small group this morning, it was a wonderful storytime!  Everyone was very participative (including the grandmas and grandpas).  Of course, how can you not love a storytime based around cookies!  The kids thought a cookie-loving cow was absolutely silly and the adults could tell what was going to happen in The Doorbell Rang.  But everyone’s favorite was of course, The Duckling Gets a Cookie!? by Mo Willems.  They loved Pigeon’s absolutely meltdown and why the duckling was so willing to give up the cookie.

Opening: Hello” with sign language
Hello, friends. (x3)
It’s time to say hello.
