Although it was overcast, there was no snow or rain during storytime. Yeah! I read a book about clouds (spoiler alert).
Young children love the white illustrations on the dark background. With very few words on each page, this book can keep a large group of restless toddlers captivated.
I was not so lucky keeping all the children captivated throughout the rhymes and songs, however. Many families were here for the first time, and that changes the group a bit. As children get restless, some grownups get restless as well. I noticed too much chit-chatting. I asked all the grownups to help with the songs, and when they did, the children were more engaged. Sometimes it works like magic. 🙂
