Storytime Week 3: Talking a Walk

Who doesn't love taking a walk? In our part of Connecticut we are lucky to have an incredible natural resource known as the Airline Trail, a wonderful place to take a walk. (Do you know the name comes from a railroad known as the Air Line and has nothing to do with airplanes?) Click here for a map of the trail.

This Week's Music:
These Boots are Made For Walking, by the Sugar Beats
Walk of Life, by the Dire Straits
Walking on Sunshine, by Katrina and the Waves

This Week's Books:
Grumpy Bird, by Jeremy Tankard
Rosie's Walk, by Pat Hutchins
Oliver Finds His Way, by Phyllis Root, ill. by Christopher Dennis
Little One Step, by Simon James
I Went Walking, by Sue Williams, ill. by Julie Vivas
Tiny's Big Adventure, by Martin Waddell, ill. by John Lawrence
Let's Go Home, Little Bear, by Martin Waddell, ill. by Barbara Firth

This Week's Action Rhymes:
1 The Itsy Bitsy Spider (you know how this one goes!)

2 Here is our world, our big round world
Here are the mountains high
Here are the fish that swim in the sea
And here are the birds that fly
Here is the sun, the bright warm sun
And here are the leaves that fall
All in our world, our big round world
Go explore and see it all!

Plus we'll do some painting with odd looking brushes. See you there.
