Earlier this week we had a “Coffee and Stories with a Cop” program, so I decided to utilize the left over program supplies for a Police Officer themed storytime. In the future, I’ll do a community helpers program, because three toddler books about Police Officers got a little repetitive. But fun!

“Where is Thumbkin?”
Police Officers on Patrol by Kersten Hamilton
Five police officers standing by a door,
One became a traffic cop; then there were four.
Four polices officers watching over me,
One took home a lost boy; then there were three.
Three police officers, dressed all in blue,
One stopped a speeding car; then there were two.
Two police officers– how fast they run!
One caught a bad man; then there was one.
One police officer saw smoke far away.
He called the firehouse, and the firemen saved the day.

“Hats on Everyone”
Hats on police officers starchy and blue (salute)
Hats on fire fighters shiny and new (spray fire hose)
Hats on marchers in a band (drum)
Hats on astronauts when they land (float)
Hats on farmers made of straw (shovel hay)
Hats on kids out in the sun (shade eyes)
Hats on almost everyone! (hold hands out to side)
