H is for Hat!

OK, I must confess that the main reason I wanted to do a hat-themed storytime is because I wanted to read this book :
 At first I was a bit hesitant about reading this book in storytime, but it went over so well -- I don't know if it was my storytime families or the way I read the book or the (very) brief warning I jokingly gave before reading the book, or my cue to the kiddos to "look for the red triangle hat in the book" so they could figure out what was going on ... either way, it was great.

Ho-hum, here's the rest of what we did today :
Books Read
"Twelve Hats for Lena" by Karen Katz
"The Magic Box" by Katie Cleminson (it features a magician's hat)
"Which Hat is That?" by Anna Grossnickle Hines

I dutifully sang "My hat it has three corners" ...

And finally shared this paper-folding story :
I told it with a bit more pizazz and used a very large piece of paper so I could actually put the hats on my head as I told the story. I also pre-folded the paper so the creases were in place for easier storytelling.
