That's what you get when you wait and plan your storytime at the last minute... all the spring books that haven't been checked out yet. They weren't horrible, but they weren't as fabulous as some of the other spring books out there. They did work out though, not too long and some new vocabulary to boot.
Cold Little Duck, Duck, Duck by Lisa Westberg Peters went well, the kids helped make all of the repetitive words and sounds. We sang Five Little Ducks with a flannel set after that and a little bit of stretching to settle down. Hopper Hunts for Spring by Marcus Pfister went all right, we paid attention to the smaller details like the spiders in the cave. The we danced to Jumping and Counting by Jim Gill, because rabbits like to jump. Finished up with Rabbit's Good News by Ruth Lercher Bornstein which was a rather slow read, but the kids were catching on the the Spring theme and were able to guess what rabbit was listening for. After the stories we worked on some spring branches with little flowers on them. Painting is one of the more popular art activities I do after storytime.
