Lilly Babysits her Brother Formac First Novels

Normally, on Storytime Crafts, I highlight picture books and add a little paper craft to go along with the story. In the past I have always focused on reading the stories out loud, for Story Time or Circle Time. Lilly Babysits her Brother can be a great bedtime story, read aloud or silently and I am looking forward to reading more of Brenda Bellingham’s First Novels.

It not only tells a fun story, but it helps kids remember to think things all the way through! Not thinking things all the way through is what gets the lazy bear into trouble!
