Today’s Story Time Starter is all about pajamas. There’s something about cold winter weather that makes us all want to hop into our pajamas and have a pajama day. Along with making us warm and cozy, pajamas also help us relax and enjoy a day at home doing fun things like reading stories, playing games, or watching movies together as a family.
And just how can pajamas do all that, you might ask? Well, here are the books to show you how!
Starting with Timothy and the Strong Pajamas, we read about a little boy who finds that his pajamas give him super strength and he can do all sorts of amazing things while he’s wearing them. How about celebrating the perfect pajamas to wear any every month of the year in Pajamas Anytime? We can even go on an adventure with the Pajama Pirates in search of buried treasure.
Whatever you choose to do on your own family Pajama Day, let us help you get started with the right books.
We’ve also got some great songs and crafts to go along with these books for you. Just add in a few of your favorite fingerplays or rhymes and you’ve got a great seasonal story time theme!
