Little Khandallah Library had a super cute Christmas storytime! The children had heaps of fun singing carols, doing a Christmas quiz and listening to the presenter, Raissa, read cool festive books from our collection.
Raissa read ‘I’m Not Santa’ by Jonathan Allen. I know those Baby Owl books are very funny. Here’s the blurb:
“Baby Owl is just out in the snowy woods, playing with his sled… so why does Baby Hare insist on mistaking him for Santa? Is Santa the only one allowed to wear a red hat? And doesn’t Baby Hare know the difference between a sled and a sleigh?
It’ll take no less than a surprise visit from the jolly old man himself to settle this case of mistaken identity!” Goodreads.
Raissa read a swashbuckling version of A Night Before Christmas. It’s predictably named ‘A Priate’s Night Before Christmas’ I personally think it’s so cool to see a girl pirate bringing Christmas cheer to her fierce crew.
Here’s a description of what’s in store: “Young mateys will find plenty of holiday joy in this humorous, colorful, and thoroughly piratical version of the beloved Clement C. Moore classic. On this ship of mischievous brigands—who have visions of treasure chests, not sugarplums, dancing in their heads—you wouldn’t expect a visit from nice St. Nick. Instead, here comes Sir Peggedy, with his peg leg and hook arm, cracking his whip and driving eight giant seahorses: Salty, Scurvy, Sinbad, Mollie, Cutthroat, Cross-Eyes, Roger, and Jolly.” Goodreads.
Raissa also read ‘Dinosaur Vs. Santa’ . This is from a hilarious series of books where Dinosaur verses many different things including bedtime and school. Dinosaur always wins because, well, he can roar and others things can’t.
Here’s the blurb from this cool read: “Dinosaur is getting ready for Santa! He tackles many challenges–decorating, making presents for Mom and Dad, trying not to be naughty–and defeats each one with his trademark ROAR! But on Christmas Eve, when he hears some rustling downstairs, he can’t resist a peek. Will our feisty red friend meet his match in the man in the red suit? Complete with sparkly silver foil on the front cover and a removable letter to Santa for little ones to personalize, this funny and sweet book is a must-have for the holiday season.” Goodreads.
The 13 people who came along to the storytime had a lovely time. Do keep your eyes peeled for future evening events at Khandallah Library!
