Never, Don’t & Shouldn’t: Preschool Storytime

Preschool storytime should always be fun!  Last week, it was even though all the stories we read were about things you should never do.

Books We Shared

When Your Elephant Comes to Play by BarbaDon't Copy Me by Allen
First we read When Your Elephant Comes to Play by Ale Barba.  Having an elephant over sounds fun doesn’t it?  But there are some things you should not do when your elephant visits.  If you just follow this advice, you’re sure to have a grand time with your pachyderm pal.

Next, we found out that mimicking isn’t always nice with Jonathan Allen’s book Don’t Copy Me! Poor Puffin just wants to go on a walk, but when Small Gull, Tiny Gull and Baby Gull start repeating everything he does, he’ll have to find a way to escape them.  Will he succeed?

During this storytime, we could not sit still, so we got up, and danced around to “Can’t Sit Still” by The Brain Waite Band.
