Egg Story Time at the Library April 2014

As a children’s librarian I get to do story time each week. How I love sharing books with the children, sometimes dressing up, and singing silly songs. It is so much fun! I’m going to be adding posts of the storytimes I do. I work with two other brilliant librarians and sometimes they plan they storytimes. We switch off weeks. I’ll keep you posted of which ones I plan. Doing storytime at the library is my favorite part of my job.

Here’s the books I used for the Egg Story time:

“Mamma Hen’s Big Day”

Finding just the right spot to lay an egg can sometimes be a challenge.

“It’s Quacking Time”

This book has lots of “quacking” in it and all the kids got to quack along. You can never quack too much in one story, I always say. There was plenty of quacking for all.

“The Cow that Laid an Egg”

This book is hillarious!

“The Odd Egg”

I love the surprise ending of this book.

“Tillie Lays an Egg”

This is a bit of a hunt and find book where kids get to find the egg that Tillie laid on each page.

We sang the song, “Five Little Ducks Went out to Play.”

Here’s a link to the words. www.storytimesongs.com/Lyrics/fivelittleducks.html

We had some egg shakers made out of colored plastic Easter egss filled with rice that we danced with. We danced to the music of “The Chicken Dance, ” of course.

The children each received a coloring page of an Easter Basket with eggs in it to color at the library or take home.

There are really a lot of fun Egg books out there. It was a fun twist to an Easter Story time.

Hopefully next time I blog about a storytime I’ll be able to add some pictures. Everything is more interesting with pictures.
