Sharing Great Stories with Kids

I love my day job!!  I really do.  As a youth services librarian, I get to share great books with kids of all ages.  My favorite day of the week is Friday and not because it’s almost the weekend.  Friday is the day I present preschool story time.  I can have a horrible week filled with dentist appointments, stormy weather, and unexpected bills, but when I walk to the front of that room, my outlook on life changes.  I see thirty or forty smiling faces staring at me.  The children laugh at all the right places in the stories.  They dance and sing along with me.

I’m sure I learn as much from the preschoolers as they learn from me.  I teach them songs, concepts, letters, and shapes.  They teach me to live in the moment.  Story time makes me feel like this:

so happy
