After a session off, it always takes one to two storytimes to get into the swing of things again, and into the routine.  I think most of this presentation went really, especially the book choices – One Two That’s My Shoe is short enough that it is great for infants who aren’t yet used to coming to storytime.  And the pictures are wonderful.  This was my first time telling “Dog’s Colorful Day” as a flannelboard story, so I think it was the least successful in this group.  I actually used all ten colors on Dog, but I think if I was doing it again, I’d half that.

ATTENDANCE: 37 people
