Let’s Be Silly! Story Time for Little Learners

Today for Story Time for Little Learners we had such a big turnout that we moved from the Baby Zone to the Green Screen Theatre! That makes things so much more fun! I’ll be a little sad when everyone goes back to school after Spring Break.

To celebrate April Fool’s day, I told bad Knock Knock Jokes and I read four very silly books!

April Foolishness by Teresa Bateman

Silly Tilly by Eileen Spinelli

Watch Out! Big Bro’s Coming! by Jez Alborough

Don’t Play with Your Food! by Bob Shea

april fool books

The theater was filled with giggles and everyone loved guessing what was going to happen next in each story!

After we were done reading and singing, everyone stayed after to make a “Poisson D’Avril” (Literal translation: “April Fish”), which is an April Fool’s tradition in France that started back when the calendar changed the New Year celebration from April 1st to January 1st. Some folks in France missed the memo and forgot that they no longer celebrated New Years in April and started having a party. The people who remembered laughed and taped paper fish to the backs of the partying people and has been a fun prank in France for every April Fool’s day. So today we decorated our own paper fish and had fun taping it to our backs!
