We are just beginning our fall storytimes. I chose a book that has very simple pictures, not many words and the same refrain on each page to keep the children’s attention. I introduced the story by saying that at Halloween people can look very different. Let’s see if we can figure out what looks so different in this book.
We have large groups for our toddler storytimes – between 50-100 people in the room for each session. It is very difficult for children to see the pictures unless we use “big books”. Unfortunately, we only have a limited number of big books for this age group (approximately 20).
I’m always looking for new titles, so please let me know about sources for these kinds of books.
