I’m a big Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli fan. Luckily my daughter loved My Neighbor Totoro when she was young, so I watched it over and over. That movie never gets old. Totoro works well with my “Garden” themed storytime.
This is a variation of the find the hidden object game:
Totoro is looking in the garden for an acorn to plant.
We look behind bushes and find a soot sprite, a tiny white totoro, a blue totoro and finally an acorn.
And then baby catbus shows up because baby catbus is AWESOME!!!
