Solution: Justin Bieber! (Bet you weren't expecting that!) Thank goodness for my amazing library assistant, who knew of this video of Justin reading The Cat in the Hat. For 8 minutes, 18 kindergarteners were mesmerized.
The kids loved it so much, we decided to watch this next video as well. (Apologies to all FSU fans. If it makes you feel any better, the kids didn't really know who he was....)
After that, we checked out books, went on a Cool Bear Hunt, and did a little Tooty Ta dance and laughed ourselves silly.
