Last week some very special guests got to spend the night in Central Children’s Library. Here’s what they got up…
When the children arrived with their teddies, they all enjoyed a storytime together.
And then they went on a bear hunt… looking for a bear…One shiny nose, two big eyes…
Oh, no, it’s a …. bear!
Run, run, all the way home!
But not before there’s time for some bear crafts, making teddy bear bookmarks.
And a tasty snack before bedtime.
The children had one last dance with the teddies…
… before putting the teddies to bed.
Night night Horsey
Night night Little Tiger
Night night Pilchard and night night Charly
Night night Baby and night night Sheepy
Night night Panda, sleep tight Cheeky Monkey, sweet dreams Dala, snug as a bug Bernie, don’t get lost Paddington, night night Mr Bukowski.
We’ll come and get you in the morning.
All snuggled up for sleep…
Ahhhh. Sweet dreams –
– but wait a second, what’s going on? The teddies have got out of bed and they’re playing cards and games…
Teddy DJ Cheeky Monkey plays the tunes.
And then it’s competition time. Who can climb the highest?
Who can jump the furthest?
Mr Bukowski takes a wander to the Lending Library to find something to read.
At last the bears are sleepy and they get ready for bed.
Finally tucked up in bed, there’s time for one last bedtime story.
Night, night everyone, we can’t wait to tell the children what fun we’ve had.
Morning sleepy heads… it’s breakfast time.
Let’s choose some books for children to borrow from the library.
And we have to remember to tell them to join the Big Friendly Read challenge!
Here they are, waiting for the children to arrive to take them home.
Bye bye teddies, come again soon!
