Nib is a mouse who lives under the platform of the subway station. He has many adventures during the day, but truthfully, Sweetfall is noisy and dirty and he dreams to find Tunnel’s End that he hears about at storytime.
Along the way he makes a special friend, has some more adventures but eventually he reaches the end of his journey and makes a new home sweeter than he ever thought possible.
This month’s Tales for Tots is co-sponsored by Kids' CBC, and Bookaboo, who's moral is he needs a story each day in order to play. After reading Subway Mouse, by Barbara Reid, we pretended we were happy puppies playing our favourite instrument, the drum, just like Bookaboo does.
The children enjoyed banging their drums with their special sticks they all brought; their fingers, hands and knuckles. We sang some drumming songs such as "This old man, he played one, he played knick knack on my drum" and another crowd favourite: dum ditty dum ditty dum ditty dum dum…
Our winner had to have a diaper change so ducked out before I could get a picture, so his picture will be coming soon!
Here’s our little girl who won: Le Contest Contes pour les bouts d'choux
The children were happy to take home their treasures consisting of Bookaboo colouring sheets, bookmarks, a Bookaboo stand up character and of course their drums!
