More Stories of Kindness - and lots of animals!

Storytime this week featured more stories of kindness and an opportunity to make a stand-up or a puppet animal. Real Cowboys by Kate Hoefler told, in beautifully poetic language, how kind, gentle, and thoughtful cowboys really are. In A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Philip Stead, animals go to visit their kind zookeeper when he is at home and sick. And in The Circus Ship by Chris Van Dusen, kind island folks help to protect stranded circus animals when their mean keeper comes back to get them.

We made animals from cardstock, decorating with markers or crayons, and adding dots for spots and eyes, and yarn for tails and manes. We used clothespins for sets of legs. Some of us added a craft stick holder to our animal to make a rod puppet like the ones we saw in Tuesday night's puppet show.
