The time of year has come when I have to officially decide what storytime themes will make the cut and which ones will have to remain a Pinterest dream until the next school year rolls around. Well, the year just couldn't come to an end until the brilliance that is Mo Willems made an appearance.

This week some of my older kiddos made Mother's Day gifts during library and they are enough to just melt your heart!! I discovered the idea through Pinterest (where else?) where Sandy and her second graders made beautiful "I Love You Because..." cards with their iPads. By the way, if you haven't discovered Soaring Through Second Grade, it's a must, must, must!

Who doesn't love adorably cute but supposedly scary monsters? This girl sure does! And the classic Go Away, Big Green Monster by Ed Emberley does not disappoint. If you're not familiar, well... You should be. You might remember me talking about Ed Emberley in my Choo! Choo! storytime post, he is the guru of fingerprint art and he inspired our thumbprint trains. Check out some of his other (incredibly cool) books.

Don't ask me why, but I have been craving doing a pizza storytime for soooo long! Almost as much as I've been craving a hot, cheesy, garlicy pizza. Sigh. Maybe I was hoping to vicariously fulfill my longing for a delicious treat through storytime. Ahh, nonetheless... Pizza storytime was a yummy success!
And now, on to the main event... I fell in love with Ms. Tara's Pizza the Size of the Sun activity and I was inspired to make my own gigantic, interactive pizza.
