Good morning! Maybe it’s the nice, slightly cooler weather or maybe the kids are just a little worn out from playing in the heat this weekend, but in any case, this may have been the most attentive storytime yet. After some stretches, shouts, AND yawns, we sat down to read one story and instead got two.
Once again, we were joined by Mo Willems and his pal, the Pigeon:
Pigeon is a kid favorite. Even Duckling has his own book too! If your kids love Pigeon, Duckling, and all the rest of the Willems’ universe of characters, why not consider throwing a Pigeon-themed Birthday Party? Here are some great ideas to get you started:
- Check out Mo Willems’s Pigeon Presents website for coloring pages, activities, and online interactive games involving all of his characters. Check out the “Grown Up Stuff” for event kits and activity guides.
- Use Pinterest? Check out Laura Polak’s awesome “Party with the Pigeon” board, complete with plushes, paper crafts, activities, and more!
- We did this simple and fun Pigeon craft last time we read his books for storytime (from This and That at the Library):
- Mel’s Desk has a great entry about throwing a Mo Willems Party for her after-school group. Great ideas for simple activities!
Storytime is every Monday @ 10 am and is intended for all ages.
