I am just starting out doing story times at my library. I have been doing them since September of last year. So far, my story times are a HUGE success and I am shocked! I expected maybe a few kids, but almost right away, I had over 20 kids! Then we had to split it up into two days. I'm still getting kids on the waiting list! I think the kids are really attracted to the music that I do. I play the ukulele. I never do a story that lasts more than 5 minutes or so because our crowd has a lot of toddlers in it.
Over the summer, our library usually has performers come in from outside. However, our budget was cut severly this year. I am going to do one of the summer performances this year. The crowd is expected to be 100 plus kids. I think the age group will have more older kids than I have been working with so far.
Who will help me out in getting started thinking about this?
