Story Time

Here are some of the stories we have been reading for story time:

Stone Soup by Marcia Brown
Pumpkin Shivaree by Rick Agran
The Big Hungry Bear by Don and Audrey Wood
My Friend John by Charlotte Zolotow
Hey, Diddle, Diddle by Linda Bronson
The Brotehrs Grimm: Jack in Luck by Eve Tharlet
Backyard Birds:  Orioles by Lynn Stone

We especially liked the book about backyard birds, and the nursery rhymes!
We will be going back to the library this morning, after the park, to get some new books.  At the library this summer is a special program for kids, and we are to be getting our new spy assignment this week.  Last week some of the children's spy tasks were things like looking up a book on the dewey decimal system (help was allowed), dressing up at home, and helping with the dishes.  I'm curious to see what our missions will be like this time.  Each time the children complete a mission, they can enter their names in for a weekly prize.  We love going for new books at the library, but this is something fun us to do as well.
