This is for an all ages, whole family storytime:
  • Opening - If You're Happy and You Know It
  • Book #1 - Those Darn Squirrels by Adam Rubin, illustrated by Daniel Salmieri
  • Book #2 -Big Frog Can't Fit In by Mo Willems (pop-up)
  • Stand up activity - Little Squirrel (action song from Movin' and Grovin' Home 2 by Kindermusik)
  • Flannelboard - Bluebird, Bluebird Through My Window (song)
  • Book #3 -Splash! by Ann Jonas
  • Activity - Here Goes Turtle (action chant, not sure where I picked up this one)

Here goes turtle down the hill,
Creeping, creeping, creeping.
Here goes rabbit up the hill,
Boing, boing, boing.
Here goes elephant down the hill,
Thud, thud, thud.
Here goes snake up the hill,
Slither, slither, slither.
Here comes a rock down the hill,
Rolling, rolling, rolling, crash!

  • Closing - Egg shakers with the song "Bumblebee (Buzz Buzz)" from Buzz Buzz by Laurie Berkner
  • Family Small Motor Activity - Create animal traps with straw connectors
