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?
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.

After playing a trick on his sister by stealing her toy rabbit, a mischievous little boy wonders who the new troublemaker is when his toy raccoon disappears.
Two young children and a dog learn about the troubles and triumph of sharing in this nearly wordless picture book (just two different words throughout the whole book).
A toy boat gets separated from its owner and has an adventure on the high seas.
Adam does not like his stuffed koala because of its terrible eyes, terrible face, and terrible paws, but each time he tries to get rid of it, Koala comes back until Adam realizes that Koala is on his side.
Phoebe enjoys playing with her new digger while her mother is busy with the new baby, until a bigger girl grabs the toy at the park.
