Happy Holidays from Story Time at Lee County Library!

We hope you will have a restful, joyful, and peaceful holiday this year and always. Thank you for being a part of our weekly story times--YOU are why we are here and why we love our jobs.

Story time will be on vacation from Friday, December 18 until Wednesday, January 6, when we will resume our normal story time schedule: Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. and Thursdays at 11:00 a.m. Meanwhile, here is a list of holiday books that you can share with your "reading bugs," as well as a fingerplay and a song to sing.

That's Good, That's Bad on Santa's Journey by M. Cuyler
A Pinata in a Pine Tree by P. Mora
Mrs. Wishy Washy's Christmas by Joy Cowley
Eight Days of Hanukkah by H. Ziefert
The Christmas Tree by A. Ada (bilingual)
Clifford's Christmas by N. Bridwell (we have an audio version, too)
Merry Christmas, Merry Crow by J. Goodell
Merry Christmas, Maisy by L. Cousins
Santa's Stuck by R. Greene
Merry Christmas, Space Case by J. Marshall

Santa's Surprise by K. Faulkner (I recently saw this GREAT pop-up book in a bargain bin for $5 at a bookstore, check it out. It's one of our favorites!)


Here is the chimney (Make a fist and enclose your thumb)
Here is the top (Place your other palm on top of your fist)
Open the lid (Lift your palm off your fist)
And out Santa pops! (Pop up your thumb)

Ho, ho, ho! Merry Christmas!


Hat, Whiskers, Belt, and Boots (to the tune of Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes)

Twinkling eyes and a little cherry nose,
Hat, whiskers, belt, and boots
