Preschool Storytime: Love

This past Saturday, we read books about love as a way of introducing Valentine’s Day!  If you’re looking for a good Valentine’s Day read for your preschooler, these are very sweet!

How Do I Love You? by Leslie Kimmelman and Lisa McCue


Hedgehug: A Sharp Lesson in Love by Dan Pinto and Benn Sutton


The Way I Love You by David Bedford and Ann James


We also sang the song Skidamarink!  Here are the lyrics in case you want to learn it:

Skidamarink adink, adink,
Skidamarink adoo,
I love you.
Skidamarink adink, adink,
Skidamarink adoo,
I love you.

I love you in the morning
And in the afternoon,
I love you in the evening,
And underneath the moon.
Oh, skidamarink adink, adink,
Skidamarink adoo,
I love you!

I'm a youth services librarian currently working at the Lamanda Park Branch Library while Central Library is closed for seismic repairs. I purchase juvenile fiction for grades 2-8, and some foreign languages. I do a lot of programs with school-age kids, including 3 regular book clubs (Windows and Mirrors, Read Around the World, and Lucha Libros), as well as writing workshops and STEAM/science programs. I also Infant/Toddler Storytimes and Preschool Storytimes, and outreach to local area preschools. I love what I do, working with kids of all ages to inspire them to learn and use their curiosity and imaginations. Outside of my work at the library, I am also the author of a book on creative writing activities for kids.
