Storytime Week 2: Relax, Take it Easy

No one knows how to stop and smell the roses like our children. This week's storytime theme is, perhaps, more of an encouragement to us, the grown-ups, to slow down a bit.

This Week's Books:
Hello, My Name is Bob, by Linas Alsenas
The Story of Ferdinand, by Monro Leaf, ill. by Robert Lawson
Hi, Harry! by Martin Waddell, ill. by Barbara Firth

Let's Do Nothing, by Tony Fucile

Slowly, Slowly, Said the Sloth, by Eric Carle

A Bear and His Boy, by Sean Bryan, ill. by Tom Murphy

Peaceful Piggy Meditation, by Kerry Lee MacLean

This Week's Songs:
59th Street Bridge Song (Feeling Groovy), by Simon and Garfunkel
Don't Worry, Be Happy, by Bobby McFerrin
Rainbow Connection, by Jason Mraz
Three Little Birdies, by Elizabeth Mitchell

This Week's Action Rhymes:
Slowly, slowly creeps the garden snail
Slowly, slowly up the wooden rail
Quickly, quickly goes the little mouse

Quickly, quickly, all around the house.

Grandma's/Grandpa's glasses

This Week's Art: The relaxing art of fingerpainting
Plus a bit of yoga
