Bats - Family Storytime

This is for an all ages, whole family storytime:
(act out the motions described)
Can you growl like a tiger?
Can you hop like a frog?
Can you climb like a monkey?
Can you bark like a dog?
Can you slither like a snake?
Can you fly like a bat?
Can you howl like a wolf?
Can you stre-tt-ccchhh like a cat?
Can you sit like a kid at storytime?
