Because I’m doing my Storytime in the Pittsburgh area, it shouldn’t be a surprise that my Penguin Storytime was a huge hit! On these hot days, and because my library has no air conditioning, even I’ve been missing the chilly Pittsburgh Winters.
I was super excited while digging around in the back room to stumble upon some fantastic penguin stickers, stuffed animals and other treats. I also perused Pinterest for some “Winter in Summer” ideas.

I’m a Little Penguin
(to the tune of “I’m a Little Teapot”)
I’m a little penguin Black and white, Short and wobbly An adorable sight. I can’t fly at all But I love to swim, So I’ll waddle to the water And dive right in!
Create A Circle Penguin!
I made my penguins a little differently, and since many of my young ones can’t cut with scissors yet, I premade all of the circles.
Here are some pictures of their penguins when we were done!

Starting in my Summer Storytimes, I began pulling other “related reading” books as suggestions for parents (and grandparents) to take home to their kids at home!
