Toddler Storytime - Farms!

Presented at Bellevue Public Library on Thursday, November 15, 2012.


My Farm Friends by Wendell Minor

The Cow Loves Cookies by Karma Wilson, illustrated by Marcellus Hall

Maisy's Morning on the Farm by Lucy Cousins


Farm Sounds
(tune: "The Wheels on the Bus")

The hens in the coop go cluck, cluck, cluck,
Cluck, cluck, cluck,
Cluck, cluck, cluck.
The hens in the coop go cluck, cluck, cluck,
All day long.

Additional verses:
The rooster on the fence goes cock-a-doodle-doo...
The pig in the pen goes oink, oink, oink...
The cow in the barn goes moo, moo, moo...
The duck in the pond goes quack, quack, quack...
The horse in the pasture goes neigh, neigh,neigh...
The rabbit in the field goes... (silently wiggle nose with finger)

Have fun with your child thinking up other farm animals and their sounds or actions!  Your child might also enjoy thinking up animals for a "silly farm", such as the crocodile goes chomp, the monkey goes he-he-he, the elephant goes stomp, the dinosaur goes roar, etc.

Storytime Has Ended
(tune: "Did You Ever See a Lassie?")

Storytime has ended, has ended, has ended.
Storytime has ended 'til we meet again.

(Children wave to each other as we continue)
'Til we meet, 'til we meet, 'til we meet, 'til we meet.
Storytime has ended 'til we meet again.


Our Hands Say Hello!

Our hands say hello with a clap, clap, clap.
Our feet say hello with a tap, tap, tap.
Clap, clap, clap,
Tap, tap, tap.
Turn around and take a bow.
Sit right down. It's Storytime now!

The Turkey
(Just in time for Thanksgiving!)

The turkey is a funny bird,
(make turkey's tail by interlocking thumbs and spreading fingers)
His head goes wobble, wobble.
(wobble your head)
And all he says is just one word:
Gobble, Gobble, Gobble!

Remember: No Storytimes at the library next week!  The library will be closed on Thursday and Friday, November 22 & 23, 2012.

Wishing you a thankful, blessed Thanksgiving!
