“A Bear’s Year” by Kathy Duval

This is a read aloud/craft program for ages 3 to 5 courtesy of Kirsten Cappy from Curious City DPW.  You can download the read aloud kit here: Bears_Years_Read_Aloud-Kit.pdf.

The kit comes with everything you need to run this program including printables and step-by-step instructions.  There are two options for the printable bear, already colored or black & white.  The set-up needed is that of a typical storytime with craft.  The program ran approximately 40 minutes but can be adjusted for less time if necessary.

What’s great about this program is you can add science and vocabulary elements by discussing the words in the book and the activities bear does in different seasons.

This program was presented by Rosemarie Birofka from Syosset Public Library as a part of the workshop Book Themed Programs: From Baby Time to Harry Potter..  For more information please contact Rosemarie through email: Rbirofka@syossetlibrary.org
