Since coloring sheets have gone over so well at the daycare, I’ve decided to go ahead and keep using them. The teachers love the sheets and the practice the kids get with holding crayons.

How It Went

One of these days I will get around to making a video about the baby shark song. It’s amazing. It’s glorious. It’s high-energy and the kids are hysterical during it. But Bob Shea books definitely can share the limelight with such a great song! The kids loved roaring along with Dinosaur and I absolutely adore using “Dinosaur Vs. the Library” because the kids get really quick at the end because it’s storytime!

    Oh man, I LOVE “Unicorn Thinks He’s Pretty Great”. Such a fun storytime book. The illustrations, the sass, learning to make new friends… so good.
