Our Storytime books today were all about friends and friendships. There are so many books in out library about friends, it was very hard to pick! But first we read Help! A Story of Friendship by Holly Keller, about a mouse in trouble and the friends who help her out. We read Bear Feels Scared by Karma Wilson, about a bear who was alone and frightened one night during a storm. Can you guess who helped Bear out? We read Virgil & Owen by Paulette Bogan, about a penguin who wants his new friend to have only one friend - him! Will You Be My Friend by Nancy Tafuri told about how a bird and a bunny became good friends. And Yo! Yes! by Chris Raschka was a quick story with just a few words but very expressive illustrations. We could almost tell the story just by looking at the pictures!
Then we made paper dolls of our friends. We decorated a paper person with yarn hair, a marker nose, and googley eyes. Then we added clothes, like shirts and skirts and pants. Some of us decorated the clothes with stickers and circles or stars and some added belts to the pant. One child even made her father - with a beard!
