I want to send out a special Thank You to Mr. Neldon Jones for being a special guest at our storytime today. He came and shared his bear story with the kids. They loved it! I asked them later if they were scared cause some of them where rivited on his story telling, they laughed and said ,"No way!".

Craft: We made paper bag bear puppets.
Take a paper bag, attach ears and arms cut from paper. Attach with glue. Draw on eyes, nose and mouth, and you have your puppet.
Thanks to everyone for participating today. Hope you have a great week and hope to see you next week.
