A Good Day by Kevin Henkes (2007)
This is the best story time book ever. It has just the right amount of words, and just enough story to keep the interest of kids and adults.
Rhyme: This is Big, Big, Big
Rhyme: Blue is the Lake
Fall is Not Easy by Marty Kelley (1998)
I love this book, but my audience was very young today - more than half babies - so it didn't quite have the response I expected.
Song: Shake My Sillies Out
Song: I'm a Little Teapot
Song: Hands Are For Clapping
Flannel Board Rhyme: Five Little Acorns
I was sick of apples and leaves, so I kind of pulled lines from a few rhymes and songs to come up with this one. The rest of the month, I'll be doing pumpkins.
(Five) little acorns swaying in a tree,
Hanging from a branch as high as can be.
Along came the wind and blew one away.
(Four) little acorns are left to sway.
Song: One Little Finger
Song: Tommy Thumb
Song: ABCD Medley
Goodbye Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This
