The idea for this storytime began as a stealing theme. However, a combination of lack of books and worry about how to frame stealing, quickly led the program to evolve into a give and take storytime.
I started with Did you take the B from my _ook? by Beck and Matt Stanton. This is a really silly book, in the fashion of BJ Novak’s The Book with No Pictures, where the adult (me) is forced to say ridiculous things.
