Spring - Nesting Time!

This week's Storytime was all about Spring, which is finally here! Spring is Here by Will Hillenbrand was about an excited Mole trying to wake Bear from his winter hibernation. And Then It's Spring by Julie Fogliano takes a boy from winter's end to the hopeful planting of a garden. In Bear Wants More by Karma Wilson, can you guess what hungry bear wants more of? And, our last book, Nest by Jorey Hurley, followed a robin family from one Spring to the next. 
For our craft, we collaged brown paper materials, corregated cardboard, and yarn into a pouched paper plate "nest", then made cute and crazy feathered birds and chicks to slide inside!
Inspired by these creations, I grabbed one of my favorite books from the shelf and read The Perfect Nest by Catherine Friend, the hysterical story of Jack the Cat, who builds a nest so he can have an omelet. Sacre bleu! The audience loved this funny book!
