Preschool Story Time, 6/7/17

Book: Some Birds by Matt Spink
I have to admit that I hated the preachy "birds should be free" message at the end of this book, but I also thought it would be a crowd pleaser and I was not wrong. I also liked the eye-catching artwork, even if Birds by Kevin Henkes is an overall better choice.

Song: The Little Bird
I did this song without the ukulele, and had the kids do very simple motions. I think I still prefer it with the uke, but it went fine.

Rhyme: Two Little Black Birds

Book: Flamingos Fly by Douglas Florian
I chose this board book because my group is small, the pictures were bright, and the text invites lots of movement. Unfortunately, the movement aspect didn't really catch on, except with my own kids.

Song: Way Up in the Sky

Song: Mr. Sun

Book: Grumpy Pants by Claire Messer
This is a story about a grumpy penguin who washes his grumpiness away in the bath. It was probably the most forgettable book of the session, and the least truly bird-related story.

Song: Head and Shoulders, Knees, and Toes

Song: Put Your Hands Up High

Book: Quack and Count by Keith Baker
I lost a couple of the toddlers (including my own) during this book, but the preschool-age kids did seem to enjoy it.

Song: Five Little Ducks

Song: Chickadee
