Preschool Storytime: On Your Mark, Get Set, Read!

In the summer, I occasionally try to tie storytime themes to the summer learning theme, but it can provide a challenge I am sometimes not up for.

Stuck by Oliver Jeffers
Froggy Play T-Ball by Jonathan London
Maisy Learns to Swim by Lucy Cousins

We Sang…

Hello/Goodbye, Friends
If You’re Ready for a Story
