Story Time

Teddy Bear Picnic Day

July 10th is Teddy Bear Picnic Day!


Do you know how Teddy Bear came to be called “Teddy”?  During the 1900s, President Theodore Roosevelt went hunting in Mississippi.  While hunting, he refused to shoot a little bear and the Washington Post made a cartoon about that event.  Toy store owners wrote a letter to the president and asked if they could make a bear and call him “Teddy” after Theodore Roosevelt.  He agreed and the toy store made many children’s favorite Teddy Bears.

Turn UP The Volume in Story Time

Why do we use so much music in story time?  It is a sort of language all in its own, but tied directly to learning.  In story time, it is used to create a friendly and inviting environment, to denote time; such as designating an opening and closing song.  In our case we use Skiddamrink to sing hello and The Clean Up Song to pick up after story time is over.

The Library Went to the Dogs!

 

Last week our library was overrun by kittens.

This week, as part of our Springtime Story Time, the puppies came to our library!
