Two little sharks, in the deep blue sea

Reflection:
This storytime was a wildly popular!  Kids LOVE sharks!  Shark in the Park was the most loved book and got the most laughs but all of them went over quite well.  Be prepared with LOTS of materials for the puppets as everyone wanted to make more than one.  I do three storytimes a week and we made 150 puppets!
