Mothers' Day

With Mother's Day coming in a few days, we read stories about moms (and grandmoms) today at Storytime. In Llama, Llama Misses Mama by Anna Dewdney, Llama has to go to school and is afraid he's not going to have fun without his mom - but you know that doesn't really happen! Koala Lou by Mem Fox told about a koala who wonders if her mom still loves her - and you know she does! I Love You Stinky Face by Lisa Mccourt was about a little boy who comes to realize that his mother will love him no matter how he looks or acts or even smells! And What! Cried Granny by Kate Lum was about Patrick, who had his first sleepover at the house of his clever, problem-solving grandmother!

For our craft, we made beautiful Mother's Day crowns that said MOM. After we pasted the letters onto a headband, we decorated with drawings, stickers, jewels, stars, and hearts. We knew our mothers would be proud to wear them on their special day!
And finally, here's one of our fathers, wearing the finished crown upside down. 
WOW - what a good papa!!
