We’ve had a great week at the farm, and so I thought it would be fun to share one of our farm books: “My Name is Mr. Fox.” Full of intrigue, disguises, and heroes saving the day, this story is great for young readers all over the world!
There was an Old Lady… with some really strange eating habits. That being said, just look at the size of her tummy!
Of course, we had to be kind to our guest, so we fed her some flies, some spiders…
And then some even bigger animals!
I hope she’s okay getting home! Tell us, have you met this old lady? Don’t you think her diet is a little strange? What kind of weird things do you like to eat? Tell us in the comments below!
I’ll admit it: I adore this book. I’m a bit of a winter grouch, and the reason is that I love the bright and beautiful colors that come in springtime and summer. With all that said, is it really any surprise that I chose this story about an adorable penguin making his own garden for this week’s book recommendation?

One of the most beloved children’s stories, both here in Turkey and around the world, is The Little Prince. This lovely tale about seeing the world through the eyes of a child and how an individual, no matter what that person is like, is valued as much as the masses has affected us for generations. We shared this story at Kids Nook, and we’ve decided we want to share it with you as well!
We started off our story by having the children close their eyes and imagine what it would look like if an anaconda swallowed an entire elephant!
Then we told the tale of a Little Prince who loved his rose and helped save the life of a pilot.
For our activities we had the children draw what they thought an elephant inside an anaconda looks like…
Then we planted our own roses!
Happy exploring friends!
It’s true: sometimes the outside world seems big, scary, and downright inhospitable (I’m looking at you SnowAcolypse). But does that mean we should stay inside and never even bother exploring?
That is the very question posed in today’s book, Star Friends.

How many animals and colors could you recognize? Well thanks to Eric Carle’s Brown Bear the kids here at Sensory Storytime know quite a few!
Next we built little vacation homes for our bears and his animal frlends (can you see the white dog?)
A perfect get-away for a bear and his friends!
Here at Sensory Storytime one of our favorite stories is the Five Little Monkeys! The kids love the monkeys and their crazy antics, and they love playing with them even more!
We made them some monkey beds on the sticky wall…
This week’s links are inspired by our Princess Party earlier this week. Does your little one have a princess obession? Is she really big into poofy dresses and glittery castles? Then this one is for you!
Is there anything more fun than hosting a party for a group of lovely princesses? If there is, we don’t know what it is yet! But before any princess goes to a party, she has to get ready!
First we made “facial masks” with lemon, cucumber, and honey…
Then afterwards we put on our beautiful dresses and painted our nails! Next we created wonderful cakes for our party…
Then we listened to the story of Cinderella! Was Cinderella going to be able to outsmart her evil stepmother and silly stepsisters? We were on the edge of our seats waiting to find out!
After storytime we had some great snacks, like cookies shaped like teddy bears and lemonade.
Then as a way to commemorate our wonderful time we decorated our own pillow dolls to look like our favorite princesses!
The party was wonderful and glamorous, but we couldn’t have done it without our beautiful princesses!
We were able to reveal our newest story for Sensory Storytime: Pony Brushes His Teeth!
