I had a blast recently doing an evening storytime at the Mounds View Public Library here in Minnesota.?A group of kids ages 2–6 and I?whirled like a tornado, swung like monkeys, buzzed like bees, measured out wingspans and other animal size-related things, read Water Can Be…, and generally just made lots of noise and had fun. We kept it very active, and the time flew by. Great kids, great parents! And, of course, great librarians!
Thank you to Children’s Librarian Ann Wahlstrom, who invited me and who is committed to bringing children’s authors and illustrators into her library to interact with kids, and to the Minnesota Legacy Funds, which help support many arts-related activities.
