Storytime Pick from April 16th

When the temperature is climbing toward 70 degrees before it even hits ten am, it’s a difficult choice between the playground, the park, and the Pittsburgh Toy Lending Library. So we’re thankful for everyone who opted to get out of the sun and into the shade and join us for storytime this beautiful Monday morning.

For their sacrifice, we read a terrific new classic about an over-dramatic little llama who just wants his mama:

Llama Llama Red Pajama
by Anna Dewdney

Llama Llama makes a terrific read aloud for several reasons, namely because its expressive brightly illustrated style perfectly accompanies to the affectionate, humorous storytelling, but it’s especially appealing for nighttime reading, just so long as your kids won’t be giggling too hard to go to sleep.

Want to do a whole bedtime line-up? Try adding these to your nighttime story routine:

Want some more bedtime-themed fun? How about this fun activity we tried after our story was complete:

Simply print out and have your children decorate. Do your kids love paper dolls? Print out the pajamas onto cardstock or heavy duty white paper, then once they’re finished coloring and embellishing the picture, cut out the pajamas and add them to the paper doll rotation.

Storytime is every Monday at 10 am and is intended for all ages.
