Andrea Cleland | 17 comments I love Karma Wilson, but does anyone else avoid this book in storytime because they're afraid they might slip up? Or do I just have a sailor mouth (when I leave work)? :/

Ann (treetrunk42) | 5 comments I used Tickle Monster this past week in three different story times: Ones, Twos and a 0-5 storytime. It was amazing each and every time. With the Ones we tickled and found body parts, with the Twos and the 0-5 Group we also talked about what the shapes were turning into.

Vicki (grandmagippy) Thanks for your comment about Tickle Monster. I've revamped my youngest storytime to include children birth-3 and it's been a struggle for me to find the appropriate length book for this group. I'm using this title to kick off Winter storytimes in January.
