 Where's My Teddy?
by Jez Alborough 

by Bruce Degen

With a little "Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear" stretch thrown in the middle when they get antsy.

I decided to try something crazy this year and start my storytime with a book about the library. Not all the children I work with have a chance to come to the library, so they don't all know what I do. So I read them all Anna McQuinn and Rosalind Beardshaw's Lola at the Library.

Lola at the Library

I think it worked because at the end of my storytime I explained to the kids that I had to go back to the library to do my work. "Remember," I told them, "I have to go buzz in the books." There were lots of nodding heads at that and then I was reminded to bring lots more books next time. With kids like that, who wouldn't?

I have a copy of Jamberry, it reminds me of Washington and berry picking.
