My name is Ashley Larsen, and I am a librarian in Pacifica, California. You can read how I became the Loudest Librarian in SHHHHHH! Confessions of the Loudest Librarian in the World.
As a children’s librarian, I’m always hunting for new books and craft ideas, and I’m grateful for the many children’s craft sites available on the Internet. I also value book recommendations and reviews, especially when people share how well a picture book works for kids of different ages.
I created this blog as I way to share the books, crafts, songs and rhymes I use for storytime, and what the kids’ reactions were to each. I hope that it will help other librarians plan storytimes and other library events, as well as parents looking for new books to share with their kids.
I make an effort to credit the many web sites and people who give me new ideas. I’m always on the lookout for craft, song, and book recommendations, so please share your favorites!
I also enjoy writing children’s songs based on picture books and storytime themes (you can listen to some of them on my Original Songs page). If you have a request for a book or theme you’d like a song for, please let me know. I’m always looking for new ideas.
