Storytime Overviews

Last week Abby at Abby (the) Librarian posted a great review of her spring storytime session. She described the general outline of each storytime, what was new, what was the same, what went well, all that good stuff. I love reading about other libraries’ storytimes! I always appreciate a peek at the bigger picture, because it helps me evaluate what I’m doing and why at my own storytimes.

I asked on Twitter if anyone else had written a similar description, and poked around a little at some of the other storytime blogs I follow, and came up with a starter list of overviews to share. If you know of others, please let me know and I will add them in.
