It was so good to be back together today at Baby Storytime! I've missed you all! Because it's a new session, we learned some new opening and closing songs/rhymes that we'll do every week. We started with these:

Family Storytime: Last of Session Special: Winter Things
What a fun Saturday! Last of Sessions are always bittersweet :) We have stories and puppets and theater and projects and snacks...suhweet! But saying goodbye to Family Storytime for a month and and half...oh, I'll miss you all! There's only one remedy for that, and that is come on back in to the library for the rest of the winter fun we offer*, or if you can't come in, stay on the blog, post a comment, and share what you and your kids are up to :) I would LOVE to hear from you!
Here are the books we used for puppets and theater:
Toddler & Preschool Storytime: Last of Session: Winter Things!
There's a lot to love about winter! Sometimes that's hard to see, but we have books to help us get with the program :) After all, winter comes whether you're ready or not here in Upstate New York, right? Let's get ready with books!
What a sweet morning for our last baby storytime of the season! I'm going to miss you all!
First we read...
Family Storytime: Arctic and Antarctic Animals!
Get ready - it will be winter soon! How do the animals who live in the coldest regions manage?? We learned a bit about that very thing today at storytime! Maybe we can all learn a little something about surviving winter from those amazing Arctic and Antarctic animals :) Here's what we read:
Toddler & Preschool Storytime: Arctic and Antarctic Animals!
More fun at the Poles today with our toddler to preschool kids! Like last Saturday's Family Storytime goers, we had so much fun with the walrus song, I just have to give another shout out to it's creator, Brytani Fraser.It's brilliant :) Take a look at the Family Storytime post to check out how to do it with scarves :)
When choosing this week's theme, I figured Winter is on it's way - maybe we can learn a little something from the critters who live in the Arctic and Antarctic regions about how to survive :)
