Family Storytime: Books and Reading

Opening Song:

If you’re ready for a story, take a seat.

If you’re ready for a story, take a seat.

Clap your hands and stomp your feet,

If you’re ready for a story, take a seat.

Book:
The Midnight Library by Kazuno Kohara

Fingerplay:

“Five little books at the library”

Five little books as great as can be

Along comes (name) with their library card

To take one home and read.

4 little books

3 little books

2 little books

1 little book

*Instead of names, I used animals.

Book:

Lola at the Library by Anna McQuinn

Song:

“If you’re a reader and you know it”

If you’re a reader and you know it, clap your hands

If you’re a reader and you know it, clap your hands.

If you’re a reader and you know it, and you really want to show it

If you’re a reader and you know it, clap your hands.

(Shout hooray, stomp your feet, read a book)

Book:

A Library Book for Bear by Bonny Becker

*too long, stopped half way through*

Song:

Head Shoulders Knees and Toes

Parachute Song:

“Read, read, read a book” (to the tune of row row row your boat)

Read, read, read a book,

Travel anywhere,

Worldwide, you decide,

A book will take you there.

Read, read, read a book,

Beginning to the end,

What a way to spend the day,

A  book’s a special friend!

*repeated multiple times, at various speeds

Closing Song
