Stuffed Animal Sleepover

This past Friday we hosted our first Stuffed Animal Sleepover Storytime! Kids brought a stuffed animal friend with them to an afternoon storytime. Miss Lizzie told a story about Poppy (written by Dick Gackenbach); a stuffed panda who is too upset to sleep until he finds the perfect thing to wear to bedtime. Teaching our stuffed animal friends how to do the Hokey Pokey we listened to the Wiggleworms rendition of the Hokey Pokey. We also read “Interrupting Chicken” by David Ezra Stein about a little red chicken who wants to hear a bedtime story, but cannot help interrupting the stories to give spoiler alerts to characters within the books. Using sign language we sang our closing song “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” with our voices and hands. Children then tucked their friends into bed and left. Our library mascot, Copa the Coyote, took pictures of what happened during the sleepover. On Saturday morning kids came back to the library to retrieve their friend, as well as, view a slideshow of the shenanigans that took place at the sleepover. Kids left with some pictures of the festivities and a picture frame keepsake. Below is the slideshow of the sleepover-enjoy!
