If you haven’t heard, a song cube lets you roll the die to see what song you will sing next. Others have used tissue boxes as the base of their story cubes, but I’m a bit impulsive and since we use the long rectangular tissue boxes, I didn’t have the patience to buy and use a full box of tissue before I could begin (and there was no way I was going to waste all those tissues). So I decided to take a chance and make a cube from cardstock and lots and lots of packing tape.
This week’s storytime was inspired by The Book With No Pictures by B.J. Novak. I have been waiting to read this book ever since it came out. It is exactly the high energy, silly book that I LOVE to read and I’d been talking about it a lot in the discussion groups for the CLEL Bell Picture Book Award (if you’re not familiar with this book award, check it out!)
