Outreach Storytime: 5/13

This was a preschool outreach program. The facility let me choose the theme, so I went themeless.

How It Went

I still have to admit that going themeless has made my storytime planning life much easier for these outreach visits. I also like having the variety of book choices to go to because I don’t know how a group will respond whereas at the library, I know and recognize the majority of the participants ahead of time.

This visit was pretty remarkably fantastic though. And I was SO HAPPY when the director took pictures and then emailed me a copy. I finally know what my storytime faces look like! I’m very expressive. I think my favorite moment was two children who were perfect imitators of my Baby Owl voice as they shouted, “I’m not cute!!” with me.
