Spring Storytime 3: Jan Thomas and Terrific Two!

This week Ms. Eileen is doing something new...spending an entire storytime with one author/illustrator!  And who is that author?  It's none other than Jan Thomas who we highlighted recently in one of our Funny Friday posts.  Silly titles Ms. Eileen will be sharing:

Let's Sing a Lullaby with the Brave Cowboy
Here comes the Big, Mean, Dust Bunny!
Is Everyone Ready for Fun?
What Will the Fat Cat Sit On?
The Doghouse
Can You Make a Scary Face?
Let's Count Goats! (written with Mem Fox)

Notice how many of her books end with exclamation points and question marks?  Those books are sure to be fun for all in storytime.  She's tops off the hour with a dust bunny craft, seen below.  Aren't they cute?!

Ms. Patty will be sharing this theme with the 2s,3s, and 4s, next week, but this week all the books center on the terrific number TWO.  With books such as:

One Moon, Two Cats, by Laura Godwin, illus. by Yoko Tanaka
Ones and Two, by Marthe and Nell Jocelyn
Jonathan and Martha, by Petr Horacek
Two at the Zoo, by Danna Smith, illus. by Valeria Petrone
Two Little Monkeys, by Mem Fox, illus. by Jill Barton
Toddler Two Step, by Kathi Appelt, illus. by Ward Schumaker
Eggs and Legs, Counting by Two, by Michael Dahl, illus. by Todd Ouren

Crafting and Listening music include:
Tea for Two, traditional

Of course, Two Little Blackbirds will make an appearance, and our craft will be two-some!
