Family Story Time, 8/8

Opening Song: Hello, how are you?

Book: Little Green by Keith Baker (2001)
I love Keith Baker, and this is a great picture book featuring a hummingbird, his various movements, and one boy's attempt to capture them with paint.

Song: Did You Ever See?
I have a very small hummingbird finger puppet, and some other flying animal puppets - owl, bumblebee, and ladybug for today  - so we sang this song to go along with our book.

Book: Hello Twins! by Charlotte Voake (2006)
This is a sweet and straightforward book about the differences between a brother and sister who happen to be twins.

Song: Shake My Sillies Out

Song: Head and Shoulders

Book: My Elephant by Petr Horacek (2009)
A boy has an imaginary elephant friend who gets blamed for messes made throughout Grandma and Grandpa's house. This book has a really cute ending, and the kids seemed to like it, even if I'm not sure the whole imaginary friend concept was something they understood.

Song: Old MacDonald Had a Farm
We did the recorded version today, since it ends with an elephant.

Song: The Wheels on the Bus

Song: ABCD Medley

Song: Chickadee

Goodbye Song: Skinnamarink
