Book at Toddler Storytime on Monday, August 4

We had a huge group today, and I was a bit worried that all the children would not be able to listen to the story and see the pictures in the book.  I read Quick as a Cricket by Audrey and Don Wood in a Big Book format and changed my voice to correspond to the adjectives: quick, slow, sad, happy, etc.  (I read books near the beginning of our time together when I still have everyone’s attention.) Attention started to disappear, but I got everyone back and focused after reading “I’m loud as a lion” in a voice that is not usually described as a library voice.  If the group had been smaller, I would have been more interactive on each page.  ~Maureen
