It’s Raining, It’s Pouring…

Hello and welcome to another fun filled storytime featuring ME the Not So Nice Librarian. With all the hurricane’s that have been beating the heck out of our coast over the last couple weeks; I decided to do a ‘Rain’ themed storytime instead of an Australian themed one – which allowed me to still do my rainstick craft, and might let any of the Littles attending that may or may not have been a little scared if they had seen any of the news lately (my kiddo did, and was very worried that when it rained that we would get flooding like there was on the TV), be soothed by seeing that rain wasn’t really a BAD thing. The kiddos that have been coming to our storytimes have been VERY little; so I have NOT been getting though all of the things I planned on. I’ve been lucky to get through 2 stories before the Wiggles gets the best of them. Which is ok. Little kids were not meant to be still for any length of time. So I just need to keep adapting my program until I find a happy medium. So this time I went with one I’ve read before, an Elephant and Piggie book, Are You Ready to Play Outside? by Mo Willems.

I figured this was a great book to show kids that rain wasn’t a scary or bad thing. It shows some of the FUN things you can do while it rains. The next book I did, was The Big Storm: A Very Soggy Counting Book by Nancy Tafuri.

I knew I wouldn’t have their attention for much longer, so I turned this one into an into an interactive story. In this book a storm is rolling in and 10 animals take shelter in a cave, or a ‘hill hollow’, according to the book. So I found some REAL live pictures of the animals depicted in the book (which adds a non-fiction element to the story and program) and allows the kids to work on their memory and animal recognition skills.

So while reading, when the animal ran to the hill hollow, I would pause and say “Who has *insert animal*? Can you bring them up to the board?” And then we would count how many animals were now in the ‘hollow’. It helped keep their attention through the book; but after the 2nd story, they were done. Which is sad, because I thought they would like the other story I picked. So neither Boom!By Mary Lyn Ray or the nonfiction book Weather made it into the official line up.

I had printed off a 2nd game to play with the kids; but it too didn’t make it to the line up.

Once that second book was done; the kiddos were ready for the craft. And with the addition of the animals in the Big Storm, it had lengthened the program enough that I didn’t feel overly bad about skipping the other books and game.

So Rainsticks! Or glorified shakers… which ever you prefer. This is a really cheap simple craft. If, like us, you have a bunch of left over cardboard tubes from other programs those work AWESOME for this craft. If you don’t, you can make your own tubes out of paper or cardstock. So what you’ll need: tubes rice (or beans work too) newspaper markers and/or stickers and other things for decoration.

First, staple or tape one end of your tube.

Once that’s done, set the tube aside and grab a piece of newspaper. If you’re using paper towel tubes, or something of a similar size, you won’t need a whole sheet of newspaper. in fact, I cut the newspaper into 4-5 inch strips then cut those in half so I ended up with pieces about 4 in x 12 in. That is in no way an exact number, so don’t go grabbing the ruler or anything. Just eyeball it, seriously.

Now twist your strip of paper. It doesn’t need to be pretty or perfect. Basically this is going INSIDE the tube to give the rice something to bounce off of and make noise.

It’ll look something like this after you’re done twisting.

Next, take that twisted paper, find a pen or marker, and twist the paper around the marker in tight coils.

Carefully take it off the marker, try to preserve the twisty, curly-Q shape as much as possible. Again, it doesn’t have to be perfect.

Next slide your paper curly-Q into the tube.

Add rice. You don’t need a lot. Only a handful really.

Once the rice is in, staple/tape that end closed.

Should look something like this:


Now decorate!

I think the kids enjoyed playing with the rice and stickers far more than they actually enjoyed making the rainsticks. Oh well.  Note to the wise… have a vacuum handy; that rice is like glitter, it gets EVERYWHERE!!!

Even the kids at the Mall Storytime were able to get in on the shaker….er… rainstick, action.

All in all, we had fun. The kids really seemed to like their rainsticks.

On the way back to work from my Mall Storytime, I got a call that no wife really wants to hear, but even with all that drama (which I will probably make a separate entry about later) it was still a pretty good day.

Now I need to figure out what to do for my October theme. I’ve done monsters and scary stories in previous years…. and I wanna lean away from a Halloween theme.

Hmmmm…. decisions, decisions.

Well, until next time; this is the Not So Nice Librarian signing off. Ciao!

Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Storytime

Hello everyone and welcome back! This is the first official storytime of the New Year here at my library, and this year I decided to start off with a BANG!… Well, not really, the higher ups kinda frown on that sort of thing.

Instead, I found in a list of ‘obscure holidays to celebrate with your kid’ that February 6th is officially “Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day”….. and what a great idea for a storytime!  What kid doesn’t love Ice Cream?

So, to dive right in… I read the standard 3 books. Since our age ranges vary significantly between programs; I’ve taken to selecting several books of varying age levels.

In the morning session I had a lot of littles; if any of them were over 3 I would be surprised. Because of this, I removed the Easy-Reader nonfiction book Milk to Ice Cream  by Lisa Herrington.

Cover image for


In it’s stead, I read another Easy book called Ice Cream Soup by Ann ingalls

Cover image for

Which is a very simple rhyming book about a little boy that attempts to make an ice cream cake….and instead makes a huge mess and Hey melted ice cream is still pretty good too.

The next book is a tried and true favorite simply because it’s an Elephant and Piggie book. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I LOVE Elephant and Piggie. And wouldn’t you know, there’s an Elephant and Piggie book about….you guessed it, ICE CREAM!

It’s called Should I Share My Ice Cream? by Mo Willems.

Cover image for

It’s an adorable book featuring Gerald, who buys an ice cream cone and then can’t decide if he wants to share it or not. Just as he finally makes his decision… his ice cream drops.

After that, we played an Ice Cream Matching Game; initially, I had planned on doing a simple number match up – count the dots on the ice cream and then match them to the number on the cone. However, since we’ve been having so many Littles in our Storytimes recently, I wanted to make sure that even kids that were to young to know their numbers could still come up to the board and play the game.

I got the initial idea from Teachers Pay Teachers, they have the template to download here.

However, in trying to figure out how to make the game Little friendly; I ended up making my own game pieces, based on the above concept. I found an ice cream clipart I liked:


I then printed several of them off on different colored paper. I still wanted to do the number match; so once I had cut all my ice cream and cones out, I drew dots and numbers on all of them. That way, the Littles could match the colors and the big kids could match the numbers.

The funny thing about the younger kids and the games… they have no concept of what ‘let’s take turns means’; so they kinda bum-rush you to get to the board and put up their pieces.

Still, it’s fun and they enjoy themselves and even if it’s disorganized, it still forced them to match colors and differentiate between shades which in turn builds critical thinking and cognative development.

For my 3rd and final book I read Groovy Joe: Ice Cream and Dinosaurs by Eric Litwin:

Cover image for

What could be better than a singing dog, ice cream AND dinosaurs? This is a really fun book written along the same vein as Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes. The illustrations are very bright and colorful; the text is repetitive, and is great for getting the kids to participate. Plus, singing the “Love my Doggy Ice Cream, Love my Doggy Ice Cream”  is a lot of fun, and even the adults were getting into it, doing a little shimmy in their chairs along with the beat.

Now, most of the kids know, that with Ms. Sara, after that 3rd book comes the really fun part….CRAFT TIME! Only this time, we didn’t do a craft per say…. it was more like a science experiment that we could eat.

We made 5 Minute Ice Cream.

Yes, you read that right. Google it, seriously. It is awesome. I had my doubts initially; I have made homemade ice cream as a kid, and knew for a fact that it took WAAAAAAAY longer than 5 minutes to make. So I sent out an  email to all of the branching within my library system, asking if anyone had actually tried this experiment. The response was pretty quick, and positive…. yes it worked, but it normally took longer than 5 minutes.


I did a little more digging and found that most of the ‘5 minute’ recipes called for Cream or Half&Half rather than milk.  Yes, you could use milk… but it takes longer. The higher the fat content of your liquid, the faster it thickens.

So, I run the idea by my boss, we get the ingrediants and give it a try.  Surprisingly, it WORKED! We used Half&Half and within 5 minutes we had a single serving of soft serve vanilla ice cream.

Now, for some reason, when the kids did it, the consistancy turned out more like that of dippin’ dots, and by the time they had put all their toppings on, it was the consistancy of soft serve.

And it tastes great too! I was floored. Where has this been all my life?!


You’ll need:

1/2 cup Half&Half (or Milk, or Cream)

1/4 tsp. vanilla (or other flavoring)

1 tbsp. sugar

6 tbsp (approx. 1/2 cup) Rock Salt

Ice (approx. 4 cups; bag needs to be at least half filled)

Quart Ziploc Freezer Bags (Slider Bags)

Gallon Ziploc Freezer Bags (Slider Bags)

Gloves and/or towels


1. Mix the Half&Half, vanilla and sugar in the Quart bag.

2. Seal the bag, make sure to remove the excess air

3. Fill the Gallon bag with ice(at least half full)

4. Add the Rock Salt

5. Place the Quart bag INSIDE the Gallon bag on top of the ice.

6. Seal the Gallon bag.

7. Set a timer for 5 mins and shake the bag, making sure to tip it up-side-down, back and forth, and every which way for at least 5-8 minutes.

**NOTE: The bags will get VERY COLD. Protect little hands with gloves or towels**

8. After 5 minutes, check to see if your mixture has solidified (it should have). If it has, you can either scoop it into a bowl or just eat it straight from the bag. Add your favorite toppings and ENJOY!

(This is my munchkin; he helped me in making the step by step tutorial…it helped that there was ice cream as a reward LOL)

Things to note:

I can’t stress enough how cold this experiment gets, so please, please, protect your hands. Also, you may need to double bag the bags; especially if your Littles are helping you shake it, as some of them did leak.

You need to SHAKE the bag, up and down, flip it upside down, then right side up. If you just shake it back and forth it will not solidify; you’ll need to work it longer.

This experiment was, as you can probably imagine, a great hit. The kids loved it, even the parents seemed to enjoy it. I made sure to print out my recipe and made it available to everyone there; and most took home a copy so they could try it again over the summer.

Now there are dozens of various recipes for this online; all you have to do is Google ‘5 minute ice cream’ or ‘ice cream in a bag’. This one, however, is tried and true 5 minutes. I even set a timer and at exactly 5 minutes we stopped shaking and opened our bags to check.

It can be messy – of course, you have kids mixing things, especially liquids! of course it’s going to be messy! – So make sure to either do it outside or cover your work space.

So, first storytime of the New Year is done and over with; it was a great success if I do say so myself. Everyone had fun; even the parents.

I have no idea how many storytimes I’ll actually be able to do this Spring before Summer Reading is upon us. We have a couple new temps that were hired and are training (Why we needed temps when they could just bloody well give me 40 hours like I’ve been asking for the last 6 years; but oh no, apparently I don’t have the ‘personality type’ for Outreach work…Bam Humbug!) In any case, it looks like the temps will be doing most of the storytimes/programming; so they can get their training in.

In other news: I now work part-time at the local Wellness Center…. well, lets not be coy, its a gym. My husband works there and since we spend so much time there anyway; why not get paid to do so? Plus their filing was attrocious! Oh My Goddess… it was awful. My inner librarian shuddered. But, not to worry…. The Not So Nice Librarian to the rescue! LOL.

It’s been an experience to say the least.

But after a long hard day, its time to relax. 

Even as I type this my kitten who isn’t a kitten anymore is demanding attention.

So, I’m off to bed. Nighty nights, my lovelies! Ciao!

Chameleons Storytime

I hope everyone had a decent Turkey Day…or Black Friday shopping spree?…Maybe got to at least visit with family and friends?

Well, I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend, even those that don’t celebrate that holiday.

Sorry it’s taken me so long to write this, my last storytime of the year, but admittedly this as been an awful last few weeks… and honestly, I’ve just been to depressed and angry to do anything really library related.

If you read my previous post, you know that a few weeks ago a dear friend passed away. Also during that time, I had a job interview for a position in my library, in MY department, that I’ve been begging for for 5 of the 6 years I’ve been working there.

Despite everything, I got my shit together and did an awesome interview.

Then, barely a week later, I get my call back telling me that they WOULDN’T be recommending me for the position. It’s an outreach position and the wanted someone who was aggressive and outgoing because apparently with library outreach, you have to shoulder your way in to a few doors…and they felt that my somewhat shy personality would make doing that uncomfortable for me. Oh and after only 30 mins with me during and interview, they felt that I was better suited to working with older children….. doesn’t matter that I’ve been doing effing TODDLER storytime for 6 blessed years….. But hey, they apparently knew me better than my immediate supervisor, who was pushing for me to have this position.

Needless to say, I was – am – beyond pissed.

On top of that, the woman I spoke to tried to comfort me by telling me that she knew I wanted a 40 hr position and she would personally look for me one. Really? You’re going to go out of your way and look for a 40 hour slot for little ol’ me? Wouldn’t it just be bloody easier to give me the effing position I applied for? The one I have LITERALLY been requesting for 6 years?!?! But, oh no…. I’m gonna trust that you have my best interests at heart.

Then to just add to my already shitty month, our new puppy catches some sort of illness and passes away before we can get the money together to take him to the vet.

It’s probably just as well that I had a week of vacation following that; because I simply was NOT in a good mindset.

Even now, a week later and a half, I’ve having a really hard time climbing out of my proverbial hole and giving a shit.

But, I’m here, and I realized still had one last storytime blog post to make for this year. So… Chameleons….

I started with Leon the Chameleon by Melanie Watt

Which was a cute, simple, story involving a chameleon that couldn’t quite seem to blend in. No matter how hard he tried, he simply couldn’t turn the right color. On a green leaf, he’d turn red, in blue water he’d turn orange…. always with the opposite colors. Until one day, that mismatched ability of his comes in handy and saves the day.

Next I read a nonfiction book called Chameleon, Chameleon by Joy Cowley

This was an easy-nonfiction that described a Chameleons journey from one tree to another in search of food. It had nice colorful pictures of real animals that live in the jungle with the chameleon. There were several places were I was able to talk about camouflage with the kids and ask them if they could find the hidden animal in the picture.

After that we had a matching game. I had different color leaves, some plain and some with poka-dots; and different color chameleons, some plain and some with poka-dots. I would hand out the chameleons to the children and they had to come up and place their chameleon on its matching leaf.

Here’s the link to the pdf


After that I read Chameleon Sees Colors by Anita Bijsterbosch.

Another cute, easy story. Chameleon had only ever seen in black and white, until one day, he sees….. and then it goes through a bunch of different animals, similar to Brown Bear, Brown Bear. However, at one point you only see a small faction of the animal and it’s color… so its fun to ask the kids what they think Chameleon sees, and when the animal is revealed, what sound it makes.

I also switched out Leon for Rex by Ursula Dubosarsky, for my afternoon session, since I had more older children.

Rex about a school class pet that gets to go home with a different student everyday and the children have to write down, or draw, what Rex did with them while he was at their house…. some of the drawings are down-right hilarious. At one point, poor Rex looked more like Godzilla than a Chameleon.

For the craft, I did a color changing chameleon.

It was fairly simple to do; all you need is:



round head fasteners


google eyes

glue dots

You’ll need to find a chameleon that has a decent shillohette. Once you’ve found one you like – a simply Google search will pop up dozens- then you’ll need to trace it on to the inside of a paperplate.

Then cut it out.

Next put a hole in the center of that plate, the scissors work well for doing that.

Actually go ahead and grab a bunch of plates that don’t have a chameleon and put holes in those too.

You see, the children color the 2nd plate however they wish – preferably in a rainbow of colors. When they’re done, you’re going to set the 1st plate with the chameleon cut-out on top of the 2nd rainbow plate, and fasten them together with your fasteners.

The top plate can be moved around the rainbow plate, giving your chameleon a rainbow of different looks.

Now for mine, I made sure to include a place for the eye so I could place a googley eye there…. but you don’t have to do that by any means.

I also had books on chameleons for kids to check out, and I actually had some little sticky lizards I gave to the kids at the end of the program.

All in all, it went well and the kids seemed to enjoy it.

So, until next time…. Ciao.

Silly Storytime Take 2…or is it 3???

Hello! Hello! And Welcome to October! Is anyone else excited about the fact that it’s FINALLY starting to get cooler out?

Yea, I’m a Fall person; it’s my favorite season with Halloween being my absolute favorite holiday.

I don’t know about the rest of ya’ll; but man, life has been BUUUUUUSY! Which is better then it has been, cause for the rest of the year, it just straight up sucked; so I’ll take busy.

This is actually for my storytime last week; yes, yes, I know… I’m late. Like I said…..busy! Doesn’t help that my supervisor is on vacation last week and this week; so both the regular storytimes and the new mall storytimes fall to me. So yea…. time got away from me a bit.

Anyway; last week was another ‘Silly Storytime’; which was about the best I could come up with for a theme. In reality; I found some new books I really liked and decided to use those and ‘Silly’ was about all they had in common.

The first book I used was called Silly Doggie by Adam Stower:

Cover image for


Which is a super cute book about a little girl who somehow mistakes a bear for a dog…… and the bear not only doesn’t eat her(which would be an awful children’s book), but lets this child treat him like a dog and love on him. It’s adorable and I had quite a few kids that told me very plainly that that was NOT a dog, thank you very much and pointed out that the bear would, indeed, probably eat the girl. So DON’T try to play with bears!

The next book was Whose Story is This, Anyway? by Mike Flaherty:

Cover image for

This story was a bit longer, and lost my younger kids a bit; but the older kids liked it and it was a good book to break out different voices and have a bit of fun. The story starts off with a boy claiming that this was HIS story about him and his cat…until he gets interrupted by a pirate…. then a dinosaur….then an alien…..and finally a knight.  All the while the kid is being kinda a brat and saying this is HIS story and the others have to leave. Eventually the other characters get annoyed and wander off leaving the kid to his story, only for him to realize that his audience is supposedly bored with his story about his cat and it would really be improved by having all the other characters in it.

After that we did a storyboard of Ten Dizzy Dragons; a cute poem that I’ve used before and completely forgot about.


Ten dizzy dragons lived long ago,
In a land full of magic where few people dared to go

The first dragon wore a garland of flowers
The second dragon had strong magic powers

The third dragon flew wildly through the air
The fourth dragon lived in a jewel filled lair

The fifth dragon rescued people in trouble
The sixth dragon liked to blow pretty bubbles

The seventh dragon wore a crown made of gold
The eighth dragon had a heart brave and bold

The ninth dragon had breath of smokey green fire
The tenth dragon was a terrible, awful liar.

Ten dizzy dragons lived long ago,
In a land full of magic where in your dreams you can go

This seems to be a fairly common flannel board. Sadly, I’m not sure where I got it originally (if you happen to know who the original artist/author is by all means let me know so I can give credit where it’s due). I’ve seen this flannel board done dozens of different ways, I went simple with mine; I kept the dragons white and just colored the specific parts that set them apart from one another.


A simple Google search will show you dozens of these dragons colored in a plethora of different ways.  If you’d like the plain print of, to make your own: ten-dizzy-dragons.


My third and final book was That Stinks: A Punny Show and Tell by Alan Katz:

Cover image for

Which is a goofy story about a class doing show and tell; and each student seems to interrupt the class saying something offensive like ‘that stinks’ or ‘that’s garbage’, only for them to turn around and show the class something like a pet skunk, or some day old garbage (ew). There were quite a few very loud EWWWWWWWWWWW’s that erupted during this story.

Now, since I have younger kids in my Mall storytimes and my morning sessions during the Preschool Storytime; I did switch out That Stinks and Whose Story is this, Anyway. During the Mall program I initially used Whose Story is This, Anyway and saw that while the parents liked the story, I lost the kids a bit, so during the Morning session in regular storytime, I replaced it with That Stinks– which the younger kids liked a bit more. For them, my third book was a tried and true favorite The Book with No Pictures by B.J. Novak:

Cover image for

Which, if you’ve never read it to your children; shame on you, go borrow it from the library right now and remedy that oversight immediately. It’s a fun book that has absolutely no pictures in it; just words. And it makes the reader say weird and goofy things. Kids LOVE it.

For the craft portion of my program we did masks/hats that corresponded to the Whose Story is This, Anyway book.  However, instead of a dinosaur mask, I substituted a dragon.

Dragon Mask Template

Alien Mask Template

Knight/Spartan Helmet Template

The Pirate Hat templates I got from FleeceFun.com from their free printables section.

I printed these out on cardstock, cut them out and punched holes in them so we could tie string to them. Then I let the kids color them however they wanted.


 Also, on a more personal note; one of our kiddos gave us a present she had been working on. A little number book! Why…. I don’t know. But for some reason she wanted to give this little book to her storytime librarians so I’ll proudly accept it and display it at the desk where all my coworkers can see it.

Alright, next up Nautical Storytime!

Beaches and Oceans Take Two

Summers over, school has started back up for most the country (can I get a collective HUZZAH! from all the parents out there?); which means that for my library, storytime is once more in swing.

This year, seems like the library system is all about ‘Market Penetration’… (stop snickering… I hear you over there. Mind outa the gutter….) Which essentially means that we are attempting to get at least one active library user in every household. And guess what that means?


So every Monday we now do a storytime at the Mall. Sadly, it hasn’t been getting a lot – note any – participation. Granted, our regular storytimes don’t always have a lot of participation either; so I’m not sure if this new program simply hasn’t garnered any interest, or if folks just don’t know its there, despite our advertising.

In any case, the Storytime at the Mall will more or less be the same material we used at the Preschool Storytime the week before. At the moment, what few parents I have run across while there yesterday, I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t think they realize we’re from the library. Pretty certain they thought I was an author selling my books or something.

They gave me the same ‘oh shit, I made eye contact’ look I know I get whenever I accidentally look at one of the vendors at a mall that pushes the samples on people.

I immediately came back to the library and made some signs proclaiming that the PUBLIC Library was presenting Storytime at the Mall and it was FREE. I also made a big bright orange sign that sasys “Storytime In Progress, Please have a seat”. I’m hoping it clears up some of the confusion and maybe will catch interest.

Certainly can’t hurt.

It’s been a long and stressful last few months; so it’s kind of nice to get back to something I enjoy doing.

I decided to do Beaches/Oceans again do to the fact that we had quite a few new really cute Beach and Ocean themed books that had just come in. Also…. I really could go for a nice beach vacation; so hey, lets pretend! LOL.

The first book I read was Beachy and Me by Bob Staake:

Which was a colorful, cute, rhyming book about a lonely girl who befriends a whale.

The second book was Barnacle is BORED, by Jonathan Fenske:

Which depicts a barnacle (obviously), who is essentially complaining about how dull his life is.  He starts comparing his life to the cute, colorful polka-dot fish that he sees and imagines all the fun things this fish must be able to do…all the way up until said fish gets eaten. Suddenly Barnacle isn’t so bored anymore.

The parents actually seemed to get a kick out of this more than the kids. I know, a little morbid. However, the very last page of the book shows the same little colorful polka-dot fish safe and sound in the eel’s belly stating how bored IT now is…… which yea, gets a cackle out of the adults.

After that we play a number/color recognition game I called ‘Feed the Shark’.  I crafted a shark head out of cardboard, complete with sharp teeth and google eyes that’s very reminiscent of a JAWS movie cover.

Most of the kids LOVED it. Though I did have one who refused to get near it, kept trying to throw the fish into it’s mouth. We kept trying to explain to her that Bruce was a NICE shark and wouldn’t bite her….. but she just wasn’t going for it.

I made some basic fish that I printed out on colored paper and then added numbers too. I used only 1-10 this time, but it has the potential to be used for the whole alphabet as well.

The last book I read was If You Ever Want to Bring a Piano to the Beach, DON’T!, by Elise Parsley:

This was just a goofy book on why exactly bring a piano to the beach was a bad idea. It was seriously cute and the kids- who were all smart enough to know immediately that taking a piano to the beach is just silly – were wincing and wide eyed at all the things that happened to this poor piano. It was a great book to engage the kids and get some participation.

After that we had our craft; Water-Resistant Clownfish. I had the kids put on the google eyes (with glue dots on the back to make stickers) on first, then we used white crayons to draw designs on the fish cutouts (on cardstock), after that we used watercolors to paint.

The kids didn’t understand why we used white crayons at first; but once they applied the paint and saw their designs ‘magically’ appear, they thought that was pretty cool.

We had quite a few very colorful clownfish swimming around the library after storytime.

I also had a cart of both fiction and nonfiction books about beaches and oceans available for the kids to look through and check out.

I used the same set up, minus the books to check out, for the Storytime at the Mall program.

On a completely unrelated note… well, not quite unrelated, but unrelated to Storytime…. Welcome the newest addition to our household.

This is Kip. A 2 month old kitten my supervisor found under a truck near the library. It was a group effort to catch the sweet little fuzzball and get him cleaned up and taken to the vet. But once everything was said and done; my husband and I decided to take him home. Our new house has been empty without a kitty-cat.

I haven’t decided what I’m doing for Storytime next week. I’ve found some cute, kinda silly new books that I like, so I might just do something along the lines of a “Silly Storytime’ again. “Goofy Storytime’ maybe? Hmmmmmm……

Well, until next time. Ciao!
