Preschool Storytime

Check out my introduction to Preschool Storytime if you're new.

This week's theme was Owls! Mainly because I wanted an excuse to read Little Hoot. The dynamic was a little.. off as we had a small group of rather hyper kids. It probably would have gone better if I just did jumping jacks for the full 30 minutes.

Where is Thumbkin

Whoo Goes There? by Jennifer A. Ericsson, illustrated by Bert Kitchen (I like the repetitiveness of this-- I was expecting the kids to catch on, and one did.)

Grand Old Duke of York (several times-- they were squirrely)

Owl Babies by Martin Waddell, illustrated by Patrick Benson (we have this in big book, which is very fun)

Shake My Sillies Out

Little Hoot by Amy Krause Rosenthal, illustrated by Jen Corace (I love the backwardness of the owl who wants to go to bed early.)

Hickory Dickory Dock

I'm Not Cute! Jonathan Allen (I love the adorable owl insisting he's not cute, but a sleek hunting machine.)

She'll be Comin' 'Round the Mountain

For other books on display, I had Little Pea by Rosenthal, Allen's other Little Owl Books (I'm Not Sleepy and I'm Not Scared) as well as all of the nonfiction we had on the shelves about owls.
