Storytime PLUS: Pete's a Pizza

On Fridays at Blue Baboon Books, we add a little PLUS to our already awesome storytimes: perhaps a craft, a game, or an activity. We'll read a story, including the songs and dances you've come to love. Storytime PLUS is free, but we ask that parents register their children. This allows us to ensure that we have adequate supplies for our activities. Register at This week, we're reading "Pete's a Pizza." Just when Pete is about to go out and play ball, it starts to rain. Now he’s grumpy. What’s the quickest way to cheer him up? Turn him into a pizza, of course! With a little “flour” and “oil,” plus tickling, stretching, and love, Pete’s mood is transformed from gloomy to giggly! Blue Baboon Books' storytimes are free, but we appreciate your support as you build your child's home library.

Pete's father starts kneading the dough. Next, some oil is generously applied. (Its really water.) And then some tomatoes. (They're really checkers.) When the dough gets tickled, it laughs like crazy.
