Head Start today– Books with mostly white covers…

This week’s Head Start storytime theme was “Books With Mostly White Covers…That Also Happen to be Super Interactive and Fun”, and BOY DID IT LIVE UP TO THE HYPE. The books DID indeed have mostly white covers! They WERE super interactive and fun!

Press Here by Herve Tullet- Always super fun and interactive. They all got REALLY into the blowing, and were AMAZED at the changes that took place between each page turn.

Mix it Up by Herve Tullet- While they were all loved and drove the kids wild, the group favorite was Mix it Up. One kid even got it confused with Ellen Stoll Walsh’s Mouse Paint and asked “Does this one got rats in it?!” [insert cry-laughing emoji here]

The Book With No Pictures by BJ Novak- This group had heard The Book With No Pictures before, but that didn’t stop them from thinking it was hilarious and asking me to read it “Again, again!” I told them that unfortunately I had to go back to the library and work.. I would have loved to stay and play for the rest of the day though! We finished up with the usual giant group hug, and I went on my way back to the library for more Summer Reading fun!

Silly Storytime 

Yesterday’s storytime was full of laughs with a few silly stories! The Book with No Pictures by B.J. Novak

This book was just hilarious. It had the kids laughing out loud throught the entire book, and I can’t say that for many books! I enjoyed being able to make lots of silly noises and voices, and the kids were happy to tell me I had to keep reading.

Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! by Mo Willems

Always a favorite! We did have one little guy keep shouting “YES!” when the Pigeon asked to drive the bus, though, especially when the Pigeon offered 5 bucks!

Secret Pizza Party by Adam Rubin

This one wasn’t as hilarious for the kids as it was for the adults, but they still got a kick out of it. It made us all hungry for pizza!
