In case you missed our sharing storytime this week, don't worry. Here are some of the fun stories and songs we shared, plus some extras for sharing your own storytime at home. 

From Storytime

Poor Mouse! A bear has settled in his favourite chair and that chair just isn't big enough for two. Mouse tries all kinds of tactics to move the pesky Bear but nothing works and poor Mouse gives up. Once Mouse has gone, Bear gets up and walks home. Has he learned to share or not?

Hey Kids,

Did you know that June 1 is National Say Something Nice Day? Maybe you could find a way to say something nice today. I’ve been thinking of nice things I could say if you visit:

     “I’m so happy to see you.”

     “You’re very kind.”

     “I like your hat.”

     “Maybe we could play together.”

     “Would you read me a story?”

I decided in honor of the day that I would read books about friendship and manners. A few of the ones I found are listed below.

Bear Hugs,



The nice book by David Ezra Stein

Monkeys, mice, snakes, cats, and many other animals demonstrate how to act towards others.


Did you miss our Monday Manners Storytime this week? Don't worry, here's what you missed, plus a few more suggestions for a very polite storytime you can do at home.

Horrible bear! by Ame Dyckman

When Bear breaks a little girl's kite, she thinks he is a "HORRIBLE BEAR!"--until she makes a mistake of her own and learns the power of saying "I'm sorry."
