Lions & Tigers & Bears - Oh My!

Storytime today featured some wild and not so wild animals! We read A Beginner's Guide to Bear Spotting by Michelle Robinson, a funny how-to book about a child and his teddy who head out to bear country. The Lion and the Mouse by Jerry Pinkney is a wordless picture book, so the audience helped in telling the story of a grateful lion and a brave mouse. Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown was another funny story of Mr. Tiger and his very proper friends, and what happens when Mr. Tiger decides to be a little less like a gentleman and a little more like a normal tiger!

At craft time we made our choice of animal: a lion, a tiger, or a bear! All were made with cut paper plate bodies, a paper head, and cardboard tube legs. And they were all different! Oh my!
