Preschool Storytime at the Ann Arbor District Library

Preschool Story Time kicked off for the summer today and was it ever entertaining. The audience loved every minute of it.
Despite a rainy day, lots of children appeared in really cute raingear to watch Meaghan, the Storytime Librarian, perform her outstanding repertoire.
The Pig’s Picnic by Keiko Kasza was a hit as was the "Ants Go Marching" song. The concluding activity was Jim Gill's song "Crazy Dance Freeze" available on his cd Jim Gill Sings the Sneezing Song and Other Contagious Tunes. The crowd went wild as everyone had so much fun freezing in crazy positions. What a great free event to bring your little ones to!!! Check out the schedule here: Storytimes at the AADL

Just Imagine!

Throw in a bunny with a box, a mouse with a cat, and a cow with major attitude, and stir briskly. This is a recipe for a fun last gathering of this session at the Wednesday Downtown and Thursday Pittsfield storytimes.

Hugs and Homes
