A Few of Our Favorite Books!

Wee Reads was a hodgepodge of activities today! Due to illness we postponed our Children's Book Week activities until today. Ms. Margaret joined us for Polske Bajki, our bilingual Polish/English storytime, and we had a blast reading our favorite books!

We read
Click Clack Moo by Doreen Cronin, illustrated by Betsy Lewin
As we read Click, Clack, Moo our library friends helped us with 'typing' and mooing.

I Ain't Gonna Paint No More! by Karen Beaumont, illustrated by David Catrow
As we read our library friends helped us by shouting out the body parts that were being painted.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
While reading this book we helped the caterpillar eat his way through the week using a cool puppet that a friend made for us.

For a craft we used a variation of DLTK's Bouncy Caterpillar and made caterpillars and a hybrid caterpillar/butterfly.


The caterpillar is now a fat caterpillar!
