Storytime: Dinosaurs!

Today we held a dinosaur storytime with somewhere in the realm of 100 attendees. Not something I thought I would find myself doing, ever, but it went surprisingly well. (Maybe that’s not a surprise. Who doesn’t love dinosaurs?) We also had the benefit of a three-foot-tall T-Rex puppet who assisted with our stretchers and (of course!) offered everyone a kiss at the end of the storytime.
