Storytime for Littles: Trucks and Cars

Sometimes, but not always, I like to do a “themed” storytime. This week was one of those times! We read these books about cars and trucks:

I’m a Truck Driver by Jonathan London

Tip Tip Dig Dig by Emma Garcia

Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night? by Brianna Caplan Sayres

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Car by Kate Dopirak

Here’s a fun link to tell you a bit more about the book, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Car: an interview with the author describing the process of writing a book all about a “little car’s night trip”!

For play time, I put out the road throw rug, surrounded by our foam snap together road tiles, with a big tub of cars, trucks, and construction vehicles.

For the art table, I found a cute garbage truck coloring sheet that the children could color and glue on some “garbage” (which was actually tissue paper squares).

For music time, I played the video of Jim Gill’s Truck Stop. I think everyone had fun pretending to start their trucks and stop at the truck stop!


Finally, please, if you love Jim Gill as much as we do here at the library, put this on your calendar:

Jim Gill will be at the Moline Public Library on Monday, August 6th, 2018, at 10:30am to do a kids concert! Join us for this free event!
