  1. What a fun lesson, Melissa.
    "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" is one of our favorite storytime books! I also love your parachute activity. I'll have to try it. :)

    1. Thanks, Sara. The simplest stories are sometimes the best, aren't they? I don't think many of the parents/caregivers attending realized books can be sang, too.
      Happy day,
