Dinosaur vs. Bedtime

Just a little note on a wonderfully imaginative storytime I was able to witness...

Lori, storyteller extraordinaire, did a FABULOUS storytime with:

Dinosaur vs. Bedtime by Bob Shea
OPL link

First, you get the kids to be Dinosaurs, they roar and roar and roar, just like any good dinosaur would do.

Next they have 'adversaries' say...

(...now here is where Lori just shines, she had the kids pretend to be leaves and she was a leaf blower! Kids were rolling and tumbling around as she made leaf blower noises and 'blew' them around.)

But of course, Dinosaur WINS! Roar, roar, roar!

A slide? How big should it be? 10 feet? No problem.
Just count the steps up, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10

WHOOSH! Wow, that was a big slide!
(Now you can try a swirly slide - tip back and forth like you're going down it. And maybe an itty bitty slide -oops, got stuck on that one!)

A bowl of spaghetti?
(sing On top of Spaghetti, all covered with cheese...)

Toothbrushing?(sing Brush Your Teeth...when you wake up in the morning and you don't know just what to do, you brush your teeth...)

And, oh no, no - BEDTIME???!? Roar, roar, roar, roar.

Like I said, very very fun! Get this book, you'll have a fantastic storytime with it - and if you ever see Lori, tell her she is terrific!
