This week in storytime we revisited one of the awesomest themes ever- Dinosaurs! I love this theme, which is obvious because I have used it before. There are so many great dinosaur books out there that are perfect to share in storytime. Also, kids love dinosaurs and that always makes storytimes more enjoyable.
First we read my favorite dinosaur book, How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? by Jane Yolen and Mark Teague.
Words cannot express how much I love to read this book aloud. It’s a great way to start out a storytime because it always gets the kids excited and ready for a fun time.
This is a nice story about a boy whose dinosaur is nervous to go to school and he eases his worries and explains how much fun school is. I was happy to discover this book because not only is it a great dinosaur book, but it is also a great back to school book. I will have to remember it for the fall.
Finally, we finished with The Super Hungry Dinosaur by Martin Waddell and illustrated by Leonie Lord.
This is a nice story about Hal who fends off a super hungry dinosaur and saves his family from being eaten. I just love the illustrations in this book. They are very cute and make the story fun and not at all scary.
The craft this week was a dinosaur hat.
This was a super easy and awesomely fun craft. What I like most about it is it can be transformed into so many other things AND it can be worn.
