What to do when there’s no storytime?

We are on break from our regular storytime schedule this week (don’t forget to register your child for the Spring Session, starting March 5, 2014).

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, so to keep you busy while we are on break, I have gathered a list of books all about teeth.  Try checking out a few, adding the rhymes/songs, and doing one of the activities – let me know how your own storytime goes (I would love to see pictures too – either show me at storytime, or post them on the library’s Facebook page).

Action Song – This is the Way We Brush Our Teeth

This is the way we brush our teeth
Brush our teeth, brush our teeth
This is the way we brush our teeth
On a warm and sunny morning.
This is the way we wash our face
Wash our face, wash our face
This is the way we wash our face
On a warm and sunny morning.
This is the way we comb our hair
Comb our hair, comb our hair
This is the way we comb our hair
On a warm and sunny morning.
This is the way we put on our clothes
Put on our clothes, put on our clothes
This is the way we put on our clothes
On a warm and sunny morning.
