Storytime Blog Faves

These are some of my "go-to" blogs when I when I am looking for storytime content.  I have subscribed on my RSS feeds or am a follower so I get updated content. Which blogs do you use?

Katie is always generous in not only sharing her books used and themes, but sharing how she uses the books and her sources.  It leads you down the rabbit hole, but oh your storytimes get good!

Many flannelboards but also some great themed ideas for books and extras can always be found here.  And of course always excellent directions!

Great suggestions for baby, toddler and preschool storytimes. I also enjoy the suggestions of other blogs to visit for more storytimes related to her themes.

I include Abby not because she does a lot of storytime content but when she does it is really a complete “storytime-in-a-post”. But she is a great blogger to follow because she has a wide ranging appetite for books, audio, observations on the life of children’s librarians and other good posts from children’s librarians around the web.

A true devotee of Flannel Fridays, but readers will find much more including tips on taming rowdy crowds and storytime resources including a marvelous rhyme and fingerplay database, complete with downloadables.

Complete storytimes on a plethora of themes can be found in this ALSC Great Web Sites for Kids” site.  This former children’s librarian generously shares her finds and files.

This is an uber-complete theme packed site with a ton of ideas . This children’s librarian encourages you to use storytelling to make the experience even more fun.

This is a fabulous site I stumbled on while using Pinterest. It not only has storytime content but also is loaded with great ideas for school age programs as well.

This public library blog has been quiet for the past six months but has a wonderful backlog of suggestions for storytimes that are brief and get you started in prepping different themes for storytimes.

A new blog (by our own WI Georgia and Cynthia) which I adore not just for the ideas but for the honesty of the writers in conquering problems.  Lots of pictures mean lots of ideas to choose from.
