Laurie Berkner is a perennial storytime favorite. Her song, "Rocketship Run" is perfect for this summer's Universe of Stories theme. It is also a great segue into Zoom, Zoom, Zoom!

I got a bunch of 70% off felt garland CREATOLOGY kits at Michael's yesterday. They came 4 to a pack, so I got two packs of each. I figured they would make excellent "Five Little" whatever props. But then I decided they looked like ornaments and had to make a little tree...

I am always looking for ways to incorporate more music into my storytimes. Sadly, good kids music is hard to find. The other day, my coworker Urmilla wanted to know if I had felt pieces for Caspar Babypants’ song, “All the Fish.” I hadn’t considered it but it seemed like a great idea. So, I set about making one at once. I work with the best people!

I had a little turtle when I was a child. Its name was “Speedy” since it had a orange racing stripe down its back, not because it was particularly fast. Speedy lived in a bowl with a fake plastic tree. A strange fungus took Speedy from this mortal coil within a month of coming home from the pet store. This song is in memoriam of all the short lived pet store animals and their sad owners.

Back a million years ago when I had a weekly "Bedtime" themed pajama storytime, I used "Ten in the Bed" all the time. It features counting down, rolling hands and the perennial kids favorite, things falling out of a bed. I remembered it recently and thought it would be fun to make a flannelboard set. I tried to think of something cute, round and stackable which could fit on a bed....Tsum Tsum!
