Land Ahoy Storytime and My Banned Book

Land Ahoy Storytime
Ages 6 and under

We read:

Big Bear's Big Boat by Nancy Carpenter
Once Upon a Tide by Tony Mitton
Sail Away by Donald Crews

We sang:

The Bubble Song
See the little sailors rowing out to sea.
Rowing, rowing, one, two, three.
                                    Jean Warren
(Have children pretend to row three times.)

We continued with scarves. I love my new scarves sooooo much. Today, in addition to the usual
up, down, all around, throw it in the air and catch, we also blew on on scarves and became sailboats.
So much fun.

The craft was paper plate boats. Boats can be made many different ways, with many different materials (I used pool noodles this summer in my Ocean Craft). I just adore these.

And now a note about Banned Books Week. You can read about it here.  I'm not running a program or doing a display about it this year, but I do try to read one title that has been challenged. The problem is.....I've read most of them. Here is a list of modern banned or challenged titles.

I'm going to go with:

A Bad Boy Can Be Good for a Girl
by Tanya Lee Stone
