Thrive After Three

Engaging programs to keep kids coming back to the library



You can make flannel pieces, or use puppets for this silly story. In David Ezra Stein’s story, Joey hops out of his mommy’s pouch for the first time. Of course, he’s very timid and doesn’t know anything. So when he meets a new friend, he puts his hands on his cheeks Home Alone style and shouts, “POUCH!” and hops back in. You only need to make four animals for this flannel: bee, rabbit, bird and kangaroo. I also love to tell this one with my puppets:

Here’s a cute craft to use: Kangaroo craft. You just need to score Mama’s pouch ahead of time, so Joey can pop in and out.
