Big Kids Storytime- Welcome to the Library!

This was my first ever “Big Kids” storytime (4+ years) and I think it went really well! I thought it would be fun to do a “Welcome to the Library” theme for the first week of the session and I think it was well-received. Here’s what we were up to:

Hello Friends

Hello friends, hello friends

Hello friends- it’s time to say hello!

Alphabet Soup

We’re making alphabet soup, we’re making alphabet soup

We stir the pot until it’s hot, we’re making alphabet soup


*On the way in, each child took a magnetic letter and as their letter came up in the alphabet they added it to our soup pot (a leftover cauldron from our Halloween decoration collection). We’ve gotten much better at this with a couple weeks’ practice.

The Lending Zoo by Frank Asch


Bookworm, Bookworm Game

*A take on the fan-favorite Little Mouse game- instead, we looked for the bookworm in different colored books.

Dog Loves Books by Louise Yates


Bingo + Feltboard


These Are My Glasses (from Laurie Berkner’s Whaddya Think of That? CD)

* Instead of reading a last book, we took a little field trip to the Circulation and Acquisitions/Processing departments. Kids got to see the inside of the bookdrop and our drive through window, which they seem to get a big kick out of.

Goodbye Friends

Goodbye friends, goodbye friends

Goodbye friends- it’s time to say goodbye!
