My bilingual family storytimes all follow the same outline, and I fill in the blanks with books, flannel stories, and activities!
This month I had a special request for counting, since one of our regular storytime attendees was learning to count to ten in Spanish at home.

Book: Say hola to Spanish, otra vez! by Susan Middleton Elya
Book/activity: The artist who painted a blue horse, by Eric Carle. We looked at the book, and then I told the story in Spanish, holding up felt pieces as I went. We then added the words to the board and practiced vocabulary.
