Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear is a soft-covered squishy board book that’s great for reading a page or two at a time. It’s also brightly colored and a younger nursery rhyme collection that I’m very happy with. Then, to satisfy older readers, I went with You Read to Me, I’ll Read to You which is perfect for beginning readers or two voices (older siblings/caregivers).

I really want to have a Nursery Rhymes CD because it’s important to have nursery rhymes read aloud. It’s better for listening to the rhymes, cadences, and sounds of different letters. Think about reading “Jack Be Nimble” versus hearing it chanted aloud as a jumping rhyme.

The toddlers and preschoolers are obsessed with the flannelboard at this library. Normally, they don’t get a lot of opportunities to interact with the felt pieces and the board at storytime. The circulating Bundles were a perfect chance to let them play to their heart’s content with the flannelboard.

It’s the middle of May and the Nursery Rhymes Book Bundle has gone out 9 times since launching at the end of November! I’m okay with this one being a low circulating kit because it’s still an important concept for kids to know.
