Books put back on shelf in favour of song
STORYTIME sung a different tune at the Beach Library on Friday, as kids swapped books for vocals.
About 20 children attended last week’s session, which was all about song and dance.
The kids warmed up with a series of stretches before putting their dancing shoes on.
Children danced and jived to “Wheel’s on the Bus” and “If You’re Happy and you Know it” among other songs in an action-packed morning.
Wheel’s on the Bus proved quite popular, especially when kids were handed steering wheels, or coffee cup lids, as props.
There were bus drivers everywhere, as children paraded around the Beach Library.
The 30-minute program runs weekly at libraries around the region.
Beach Library (Friday), Bowen Library (Tuesday) and Proserpine Library (Tuesday) each hold sessions from 10.30am.
The Collinsville Library’s Storytime program meets fortnightly on Wednesday’s from 9.30am.
WHEELS ON THE BUS: Florence, 3 and Lucy Harriott, 2, attend the Beach Library's Storytime with Marie Gil (centre) last Friday.
