Storytime with Miss Yumi

Has your class enjoyed storytime with Miss Yumi yet?

I discovered her site in August and I love it! She's a preschool teacher who does a great job reading and uploading clear pics of the books.  The video is set to soft music playing in the background which is soothing, never distracting.   Well worth a look!  Here are some of the books we've been enjoying from her YouTube Channel.


Honestly, I prefer to read most books to my class myself.  But after reading some of the above books aloud dozens and dozens of times, I'm more than happy to have Miss Yumi step in.  (Especially for the two Crayon books.  Reading some of the font choices in these books have been difficult on my eyes.


I'm so glad I discovered her channel right as she started it a few months ago.  My kids are too! There are already 33 posted books.  She adds new books all the time and takes requests.  Enjoy!


  1. Hi Lisa!
    This is Miss Yumi. My family came across your blog post recently and excitedly told me about it. I am so happy to hear you and your class are enjoying Storytime with Miss Yumi. I appreciate your comments about my channel. It means a lot to me, especially coming from a fellow educator. Let me know if there any books you and your class might enjoy watching/listening to in the future. Thanks again for your support!

  2. Hello~ Good to hear from you! I plan on making requests after the holidays! I pinned this post to Pinterest so hopefully you have been getting some new followers. Keep up the great work! I really loved the reading of the Christmas Tree Book (can't remember title. The one with the animals.) but couldn't find a picture to post yet. Great story and one I didn't know. I'm also a former K-5 media specialist so I love discovering new gems, too! Thanks for your hard work! Greatly appreciated!

    1. Thanks for sharing on Pinterest! I appreciate your support! Looking forward to your book requests. Until then, enjoy the holiday break!
