Last week we had our first Pajama Storytime of the summer. At 6:30pm the kids began showing up bedecked in nightgowns and footies, their stuffed animals in toe.
We sang Ten in the Bed, read some bedtime stories including Sleepy Bears by Mem Fox, Russell the Sheep by Rob Scotton and The Night Worker by Kate Banks. We also did some animal stretches (pretend you’re an elephant, a monkey, a snake, etc…) and ended, of course, with the (Sleepy) Hokey Pokey.
One of the highlights- working on the Reference Desk about 15 minutes before the program began. I had already changed into my p.j.’s. I don’t know if it’s a New Yorker thing, but most of the adults just looked me up and down, gave me a bit of the stink eye, and then proceeded to ask their question. I love it!
