Reading the Loudest Roar by Thomas Taylor in story time

A few years ago, our local newspaper came and did an article on library programs and recorded me reading one of my favorite stories, The Loudest Roar by Thomas Taylor. I LOVE that I have this precious memory. If you listen closely you'll here one of my little ones roaring along as well. Such a wonderful memory!! 

I especially love how the videographer gave the reading what I'm calling its own "Reading Rainbow" moment! 

Changes are coming to Story Time Smiles and Amber's Tween Reads

I have noticed the past few months I have neglected these two blogs. I promise it wasn't intentional, I just got extremely busy with my parents-- especially my mother. She's been really sick this past year and even ended up getting half of her foot amputated after a long battle you can read about here. 
So after careful consideration, I have decided to merge these two blogs into one. In the next few weeks, these blogs will be deleted and recreated to be helpful to people with children for birth until they hit the teen years. I will have book reviews, craft ideas, story time plans and music recommendations. My new vision for the blog is to be one stop shopping with anything you may need for story times or just an afternoon with the kids. 

I hope you'll join me on this new adventure and thanks for following me on the past journey and I hope you'll continue to follow as I embark on a new one. Happy reading! Amberdenise
