Thanks to all the parents who brought their toddlers to read books about how we show our love for one another! We had a great turn out for our first gathering. Fifteen children brought an adult to share in the fun!
First we read How do dinosaurs say I love you? by Jane Yolen.
We sang "Skinnamarink" with Miss Nina who showed us how to add fun hand motions. (And I have been humming it ever since!)
Then we watched Guess how much I love you read by the author Sam McBratney on Barnes and Noble's Online Storytime.
Next we played a game of musical hearts where the children walked in a circle and stopped on a heart that told them something fun to do, like "give a hug" or "hop like a bunny".
We ended our time together reading Mommy's best kisses by Margaret Anastas, and sang a goodbye song.
What a fun time we had! I can't wait for next week.
