Today in Book Babies the little ones dug for buried treasure. I don't know which was more fun...finding the buried treasure or playing with the shredded paper in which the treasure was hidden! Our puppet pirate friend, Captain Jack, was there to introduce us to his pet bird named Polly, and we rowed our boats across the sea singing sea shanties along the way.
This week the threes, fours, and five year olds learned why pirates don't usually babysit when we read Pirates Don't Change Diapers by Melinda Long. We practiced our very best arghs and made hooks for our hands....just like a real pirate!
We have many more fun activities planned for the rest of March as we continue to focus our storytimes on events pulled from the book The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain. If you know a little one who likes to sing, dance, and listen to great stories, bring him on down to the library for a fun time. Our storytimes are at 1:30 pm on Mondays, 10 am on Tuesdays and 10 am for Book Babies on Wednesdays.
