Tales for Fours and Fives, 8/18

Only one child in the intended age group showed up today for the final Tales for Fours and Fives. The other 10 or so kids in attendance were ages 3 and under. But it was worth it to bore them with these longer books to see the way just that one little boy's face lit up. I'll be saving all three of the books below for school visits and story times for the local preschools!

Opening Song: Hello, how are you?

Book: Peter Spit a Seed at Sue by Jackie French Koller, illustrated by John Manders(2008)
The rhyme in this is sometimes difficult to read correctly, but the humor of the story is worth it. Silly, summer fun.

Song: Shake My Sillies Out

Book: If I Built A Car by Chris Van Dusen (2005)
In the style of Dr. Seuss, Van Dusen relates one boy's imaginings about the perfect car. This book won the 2006 E.B. White Read Aloud Award.

Song: The Wheels on the Bus (Raffi version)

Book: Prudence Wants a Pet by Cathleen Daly, illustrated by Stephen Michael King (2011)
Prudence wants a pet so badly, she begins adopting household objects and trying to teach them tricks.

Song: ABCD Medley

Song: Chickadee

Song: Skinnamarink
