Guest Blog - Story time with Celeste

HELLO Everyone!

It was GREAT seeing all the faces at Storytime Tuesday;  both our 'old' friends and our new!  In case you do not know, since I do not always remember to introduce myself, my name is Celeste and I am the Storyteller most Tuesdays.  Most of my kidlets (and their folks) call me Miss Celeste :-)

Our Letter of the Week was N.  Perhaps you would like to teach your littles some N words?  We all know that kids looove noodles – but what is/are your favorite 'N' words? 

I did a quick image search on Google and just found a ton of fun 'N' coloring pages.  There were even some super detailed ones for you grups (grown-ups), like me, that love to color! So those are out there and easily accessible if you are looking.

Going along with our 'weather' theme for January, our books yesterday were about the snow.  While we only read two (what a lively group we had!) there are a LOT more with that same theme at our fabulous library.

We read:

Froggy Gets Dressed by Jonathan London and Duck Skates by Lynne Berry

Did you know that there is a whole series of Froggy books?  And they are all just as fun as the one that we read. I think that my personal favorite is 'Froggy Bakes a Cake,' but then I liked to bake with my kidlets when they were small!
 
Other Snow themed books available at E.P. Foster:

Mouse's First Snow by Lauren Thompson (there are about 8 or 9 Mouse books - YAY!)

Snowy blowy winter by Bob Raczka

Little Bea and the Snowy Day  by Daniel Roode

Snow is my Favorite and my Best (a Charlie & Lola book) by Lauren Child

Snow by Cynthia Rylant (if you haven't been introduced to Cynthia Rylant's books, yet – Go Forth and find them - for she is amazing!  My  family particularly loves her 'Mr. Putter & Tabby' and her  'Henry & Mudge'  books.

Snowball Soup by Mercer Meyer Yep, one of those silly, fun 'Little Critter' books! How can you resist?

These were just a few that H.P. has.  Do you & yours have a favorite snow-themed book? Please share!

Author Website of the Week:

Mercer Meyer's Website is just packed full of fun! Not just the usual list of books and a coloring page or two, oh no! Mr. Meyer's website has apps, games, movies, Sing-a-longs and so much more!  I hope that you all enjoy our very first Author Website of the Week

This Week:

Our Letter this week is 'O'.  Octopus, orangutan, orange...Does your little one have a favorite 'O' word or thing?
Our Theme will be 'Cold Weather Critters'.  Does your little one have a stuffed 'Cold Weather Critter'?  Please feel free to bring it.

If you have song, book or Storytime theme suggestions, I would love to hear them. 

Until next week,

Miss Celeste
