Toddler Storytime ~ Penguins

This Toddler Storytime was presented at Bellevue Public Library on January 14, 2015.


Puffins Climb, Penguins Rhyme by Bruce McMillan

If You Were a Penguin by Wendell and Florence Minor


Everybody Say Hello!
(tune: "London Bridge")

Everybody say hello, say hello, say hello,
Everybody say hello, hello Wesley!

(Wesley is my turtle puppet who pops out of my apron pocket whenever we sing this song.  Then he sits quietly on his rock and listens to the stories and sings along with us.  At the end of storytime he says goodbye to the children, gives them high fives, eats pretend food from their hands, blows kisses, and plays hide and seek!)

I'm a Little Penguin 

I'm a little penguin, black and white.
Stout and fluffy, what a sight!

I can't fly but I love to swim.
So I'll waddle to the water and dive right in!

Playtime Activities:

What's in the Green Box?
(tune: "Sally Wore a Red Dress")

What's in the green box,

The green box, the green box?
What's in the green box
For us to play?

Feed the Penguin:
Numbered penguins on laminated cards tell us how many goldfish crackers to place on each one's belly!

Flannel Stories: 
"Five Little Penguins"

Penguin Tattoos were handed out to those who wanted them!

Each Toddler Storytime includes activities that support one or more of the five early literacy practices identified as essential in helping your child develop the skills they need before they can learn to read. The five practices – singing, talking, reading, playing and writing –were developed for Every Child Ready to Read®, an initiative of the Association for Library Services for Children (ALSC) and the Public Library Association (PLA).
