Today I took storytime at the library where I work part time. It was my the first time, though it was taught in the library course I did. There were eleven children under five years old with their mums. This week was about hippos and rhinos so there were five books on this theme, I have included a picture of one of them. We also did about four rhymes/songs but it was tricky finding ones about hippos or rhinos. Then the children coloured in and cut out hippos. I would quite like to write some children’s stories one day, so I think storytime is going to add to my understanding of children’s literature as well as being fun.
