Did you miss our Toys storytime this week? Don't worry, here's what you missed, plus a few more suggestions for a toy themed storytime of your own. The books with stars before the title were shared this evening. It can be a good opportunity to talk with children about sharing, losing, or forgoing toys they have outgrown as times for new toys approach, like birthdays or the holidays.
We also danced to Toy Boat by Jim Gill from his Irrational Anthem CD and found our missing teddy bear hiding under different colored circles. We used a flannel board, but you could do the same thing with pots, boxes, or pillow cases.
Little Bear, Little Bear
Where is Little Bear?
Could he be hiding under
the blue circle there?
A train-loving baby elephant is excited to go on a real train, but when the other baby animals want to play with different vehicles, he becomes upset, until he tries some of the other toys for himself. Also available as a board book.
When a small boy named Eddie goes searching for his lost teddy in the dark woods, he comes across a gigantic bear with a similar problem.
