Books put back on shelf in favour of song

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

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.
