Storytime: Oceans & Beaches

esterday was the first Storytime of our 2022 "Oceans of Possibilities" Summer Reading Program. So many familiar faces came back to Storytime now that school is out for the summer! We read two ocean books by the same author, David Somar, but they were very different stories. In Ladybug Girl at the Beach, the title character is reluctant to go into the ocean. In Three Bears in a Boat, the title characters set off to sea on their own to find a special gift for their mother.  

Our craft involved making a beach or ocean scene using paper plates or cardboard as a base. Kids made seaweed from streamers, fish from foam, and sandy shores from sandpaper. Younger children used peel-and-stick fish and ocean creatures to fill up their oceans. Some covered their final creations with blue cellophane to make their scene look like it was under water. So much fun and such creativity.
