The Internet Is Cool!
Annie (@sotomorrow) sent over this great Body Positive Storytime from Liz (@lizinthelibrary) (who I think I maybe met in a bar at ALA2010? Did that happen?) There’s a lot I like about this post: That she explains the educational value behind flannel stories, that she lists A LOT of alternate book options (I never seem to have the books people list in their posts) and of course that she’ s doing covert feminist storytime in a totally nonthreatening manner. I definitely plan on trying out this storytime myself.
Those geniuses over at the Storytime Underground Facebook page all listed their blogs, so if you need to repopulate your RSS feed, you’re golden.
Holy ECRR2, Batgirl! Kelsey shares a ton of parent tips, organized by ECRR2 skill. Like a ton. Like, A TON. The internet makes me LOOK like a really smart librarian to my patrons, because my colleagues post resources like this. Thanks, colleagues!
I don’t know that this video is skill building, per se, but it IS Mercer Mayer telling There’s An Alligator Under My Bed, so, I thought you’d want to see it.
In animal photo news, this young gentleman needs his tummy boopsered, so please volunteer if you are available for that.
As always, if you see something (awesome) say something (via email, twitter or Facebook).
