Try incorporating puppets during your storytime. Children of all ages love them!

Puppets can be used in many ways. For example, I use a spider puppet to introduce the book, "Spider on the floor." We also might use the same puppet when singing, "The eensy weensy spider." Have fun with your storytime and the children will too.
