Toddler storytime on Monday, April 11

Although it was overcast, there was no snow or rain during storytime.  Yeah!  I read a book about clouds (spoiler alert).
Image of item 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.  🙂
