When you hear sugar, spice and puppy dog tails you think of little boys and little girls. But what is a storytime made of?
One by one the happy little critters are riding and strolling their way to storytime with Miss Bingo, a comfy flamingo sporting a knowing-looking pair of reading spectacles. She is the keeper of the books and the reader of stories.
Skunks, owls and alligators perched expectantly before her, Miss Bingo shares familiar nursery rhymes of kittens and mittens and the ever-important blind mice..all three.
Storytime spreads off the pages into your own special story place. There is wiggling and clapping and a few teares - typical of many storytime gatherings. The love of story, the importance of stretching high and low along with good friends builds a bridge that invites every little one into the amazing world of imagination and connection and once upon a time.
