As part of my job, I get to widen the minds of young children. Yes, they actually put me in the front of a roomful of toddlers and say "go." The parents are there so we can't get too far into the indoctrination of why mornings shouldn't start before noon and the joys of being nocturnal and totally caffeine dependent ...but increasing their exposure to hedgehogs--that we can do.
Pathetic, right? Here I am, shoving my opinion of what a cute animal is on impressionable children. Fortunately--Jan Brett is here to lend a hand. Have you seen the activities page that woman has put together! Story time ideas EVERYWHERE!!! So many wonderful activities, coloring pages, craft ideas and things...
I'm going to be visiting this page a lot. And Hedgehog themed story time is currently scheduled for February.
