We started with some spooky fun today with Kathryn O. Galbraith’s Boo, Bunny! After reading about two brave bunnies trick-or-treating in the dark, we went on a ghost hunt (a variation of last week’s We’re Going on a Bear Hunt). It was a lot of fun being brave together and finding a ghost in a haunted house!
The ghost hunt gave me the wiggles, so after working out those wiggles with body rhymes, we read Wiggle by Doreen Cronin. “Would you join me for a wiggle? Would you wiggle on the moon? I think we’re out of wiggles now. See you wiggle soon!”
Good-Night, Owl! by Pat Hutchins was our next book. Poor owl can’t get to sleep with so many other animals making noise! After hearing some of the sounds different birds make , we read a really fun read-aloud, Antoinette Portis’s Froodle. When little brown bird decides to say something other than “peep,” the other birds try being silly, too!
Finally, we read a beautiful fall story, The Little Yellow Leaf by Carin Berger. One leaf has a hard time letting go of his tree like all the other leaves until he finds a friend.
Thank you for joining me for storytime. See you next week!
