This Papa Bear and Me Storytime was presented at Bellevue Public Library on March 24, 2015.
Papa Bear & Me Storytime is designed to appeal especially to daddies, grandpas and other men in a child's life. I try to choose stories that 1) are about bears, or 2) have a strong, positive male figure in the story. While I issue a special invitation for men to accompany their children to this storytime, please know that everyone is welcome to come!

Each Papa Bear & Me Storytime includes activities that support one or more of the five early literacy practices identified as essential in helping your child develop the skills they need before they can learn to read. The five practices – singing, talking, reading, playing and writing –were developed for Every Child Ready to Read®, an initiative of the Association for Library Services for Children (ALSC) and the Public Library Association (PLA).
