I took Lily to laptime at the Orem Public Library yesterday. I have wanted to go for a few months but it is right during Lily's morning nap time so I never have. Today probably wasn't the best day to wake her up early as she was already having a hard day, but we went anyway.
There were a lot of little kids with their parent(s) there. Today's theme was about mothers. We would read a book and then sing a song, and then read another book, and then sing another song. Lily was really excited at first to see the pictures n the book, but once we started singing she got really shy and clingy. During the second book she lost interest and I ended up having to walk her around to keep her from distracting other kids.
The other kids seemed to love it, and I really think Lily would have liked it more had she not been having a hard day already.
Story time is scheduled for just 20 minutes which I think is the perfect amount of time for tiny kids. Also, it's free which is always nice, and it's a perfect rainy day activity in Utah County.
