    What a great resource you have put together! Any chance you are considering putting your themes on Pinterest?

      I haven’t personally put any on my blog up on Pinterest, but if you like something and want to pin — please feel free!

    You should do one about the giving tree. It would be a great flannel board, I did one and loved it

      That’s not on my list of to-makes right now, but I’ll consider adding it!

    Starting in January I’ll be doing 5-6 story times each week (two in house, four outreach) and this list has been SO helpful with my planning. Thanks so much for posting everything you have compiled! I hope to one day be this organized in my own blog!!

      I’m actually horribly behind in updating!! I’m glad that it appears that I’m organized though, and I’m so glad that the list has been helpful!

    I’ve been blogging my themes for a while too, and I really love doing it. Lately I’ve been compiling a list of them on squidoo, including more details, like youtubes and itunes stuff: http://www.squidoo.com/storytime-at-the-library
    I’m in the process of transferring my year’s worth over, but I’ve never tackled some of the themes you’ve done. OK if I add a link on my page to yours? Thanks.

    Wow Thank you so much. Great blog. Your blog has awesome themes, and interesting book list, I wanted to start story time in my area, as we dont have libraries closeby. I have a question, the themes, is it applicable to children of ages 0-6.

      I use my themes with a variety of audiences, but mostly gear them towards ages 3-5.

    Hi Katie, I just love your blog and how you have the themes all laid out nice and neat for us to peruse! How do you get them to not come up as one big drop down menu, but rather in link format/ individual pages?

      In WordPress, you have the option of creating multiple pages. I have a specific theme page and I just create links by doing the HTML. I wish I could explain it better, I’m sorry!

    I have just found your blog through a link from an article sent to me by a colleague about handouts in story time. OMG! Thank you for this wonderful resource! I started a preschool story time twice a month at the public library in a small, rural town. I’ve just kind of made it up as I went, but it needs to be tweaked. I think I’ve just found the method to do the tweaking! Thank you, thank you, thank you ~ especially from my Book Buddies!
