December's Momaha-Bellevue Story Time!

Presented at Bellevue Public Library on Thursday, December 5, 2013, in partnership with Momaha, the Omaha World-Herald's online community for moms.


As children arrived for Story Time they joined in a sing-along!  We all grabbed some jingle bells and sang... "Jingle Bells"!  Some of us got in the spirit by putting a red dot on our nose as we sang "The Reindeer Pokie"!

Since I know you'll ALL want to sing this at home, here are the words:

The Reindeer Pokie
(tune: "The Holie Pokie")

You put your antlers in,
You put your antlers out.
You put your antlers in
And you shake them all about.

You do the reindeer pokie
And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!

You put your hooves in...
You put your fluffy tail in...
You put your red nose in...
You put your reindeer self in...

We called another audible this month and changed our Storytime theme.  We were very pleased to welcome Kathryn Stahl, an actress and teacher at The Rose Theater!

Our audience was a little smaller than usual, probably because of the low temps and wind chill.  Brrrrrrrr!

Here are the 3 wonderful stories Kathryn shared with us:

My Red Balloon by Eve Bunting, illustrated by Kay Life


Henry the Christmas Cat by Mary Calhoun, illustrated by Erick Ingraham

Into The Forest written and illustrated by Anthony Browne


Kathryn brought along 2 sets of 2 tickets to the Rose Theater's current production of "Narnia: The Musical", which were given as door prizes.  Our congratulations to the families who won the tickets!  Perhaps after you attend the show you can leave a review on this blog post!!

As children were getting ready to go back out into our frigid Nebraska evening they each picked an item from our door prize table:

We ended our evening with milk and 3 varieties of delicious cookies, provided by The Cake Specialist.  We thank Jayme and Ryan from The Cake Specialist for their generous support!

Here are a few photos and a video clip from the event:

Our next Momaha-Bellevue Storytime will be held on Thursday, January 3rd at 7 PM. 
I hope to see you there!
