Space Storytime

I’m going to try to structure each month around a different letter and then each week the stories will all be about a word starting with that letter. December is all about the letter S.

Sign Language

This week’s word was moon.

The Books


Hush, Little Alien by Daniel Kirk

Tickle Monster by Josie Bissett

Songs, Rhymes & Fun

As usual, we played with our felt pieces & puppets.



I wasn’t sure about reading Tickle Monster since it doesn’t appear to be a space book. My concerns were unfounded because he’s an alien! and the kids loved all the tickling. I assumed the parents would tickle their kids at the appropriate points in the book but the kids preferred running up to me and getting tickled. It’s a great, unconventional pick for a space/alien storytime.
