During the summer we hold a Dance Party after our usual Baby Storytimes. Last summer was the debut of Dance Party in this library and it was so popular we brought it back for another round. This means for the next 9 weeks I get to sing and rhyme with babies at 9:30 and again at 10:30, then rock out with kids of all ages from 11-11:45. I have the best job. 🙂
We had a 5 week break this year so I decided to ease in to storytime with some old favorites. Here’s what we did:
I Kissed the Baby by Mary Murphy
If You’re Happy and You Know It
Itsy Bitsy Spider by Annie Kubler
Now for the Dance Party! I re-made the list I passed out last year to include only songs patrons can download from Freegal. This way the program supports our collection in addition to be great fun! The handout also includes a book list of songs with dancing, music, and the like. Everyone seemed really excited about the prospect of continuing the Dance Party at home so I think the revised handout was a good move. Since there were over 100 in attendance Freegal will hopefully be getting some extra traffic this week!
Here’s the Dance Party Handout.
