Looking for quirky, fun ideas for storytime?  Just ask Northeast Regional’s Christine Cornwall, and you’ll be amazed at what she comes up with!  Christine has worked in the Northeast Regional Children’s Department for the past two and a half years and during that time, she has demonstrated a flair for creating exciting, interactive storytimes, using an assortment of songs and fingerplays and, of course, books!   

One of Christine’s most interesting ideas so far?  I think that would be “Outer Space Storytime!,” which she recently created for a visiting preschool group.  If your preschooler has an interest in space, or you just want to try something a little different, this selection of books and music may be just what you’re looking for.  Blast off on a fun-filled, intergalactic adventure with some of Christine’s favorite space-themed books and songs:

Sheep Blast Off! by Nancy Shaw

Space Boy by Leo Landry

Hush Little Alien by Daniel Kirk

The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers

CD: Here Comes Science by They Might be Giants

If you’d like to see Christine in action, visit Northeast Regional Library on Wednesdays in March!  Christine will be holding a “Kids in Action” preschool series on Wednesdays at 1:30 p.m., in the NER Children’s Department Storyhour Room.  (This program is intended for children ages three to five, and their caregiver.)
