Toddler Storytime: Police Officers

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!

Police Officers on Patrol by Kersten Hamilton

Action Rhyme:

“Police Officers”

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.

Five funny dinosaurs letting out a roar.

One funny dinosaur afraid to be a hero.

He went a way, and then there was zero.
