TWO-sday Friends Storytime: October 2017

This TWO-sday Friends Storytime was presented at Bellevue Public Library on October 24, 2017.

Each TWO-sday Friends Storytime includes activities that support all or most 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).

The More We Get Together

The more we get together, together, together,
The more we get together, the happier we'll be!
'Cause your friends are my friends
And my friends are your friends.
The more we get together, the happier we'll be!


Friendship Necklaces
Tonight's attendees had the chance to make a pair of necklaces or bracelets: one for themselves and one for a friend!  Here are a few photos from the activity:
