Wee Reads is for the Birds!

Today Wee Reads shared books about birds as we welcomed Spring and celebrated the return of open windows and the lovely sound of our feathered friends.

We began by making bird puppets using a template from Family Fun and children were allowed to decorate their birds any way they liked.

These foam shapes are a favorite!

Today Ms. Abbe was available and played her ukulele for our normal warm-ups. We learned the sign for bird and read a storytime favorite, Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems.  The group enjoyed all of the ways the pigeon tries to get their permission to drive the bus.

Can we get enough of this book?

Miss Abbe played a modified version of Mama Don't Allow, substituting bird references for the words. 

Next we shared Round Robin by Jack Kent. The kids loved this book and parents laughed too as poor Round Robin bumped his way south for the winter. 

Very well loved read
After reading Round Robin we helped feed him with bubbles! A friend generously donated bubbles to the library and we blew them all over the family room to help feed Round Robin.

Join us for storytime on Thursdays beginning at 10:30 AM.
