Whoo’s Here for Storytime?
Opening Song: Roll Your Hands
Roll, roll, roll, your hands, fast as fast can be!
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily roll your hands with me!
Mix it up: clap, wiggle, go slow
Book: I’m Not Cute by Jonathan Allen
Rhyme: Wide-eyed Owl
There’s a wide-eyed owl with a pointed nose
And when he looks at you
He flaps his wings and says Whoo Whoo!
Book: Owl Babies by Martin Waddell
Rhyme: Five Little Owls
Five little owls on a moonlit night
Five little owls are quite a sight
Five little owls, are you keeping score?
One flew away, and then there were four!
One flew away and then there were three.
Three little owls calling who, who
One flew away and then there were two.
Two little owls having lots of fun
One flew away and then there was one.
One little owl, we are almost done,
He flew away and that leaves none.
Book: Cock-a-doodle-hoooo! By Mick Manning
Here is the ostrich straight and tall
Nodding his head above us all
Here is the hedgehog prickly and small
Rolling himself into a ball.
Here is the spider scuttling around
Treading so lightly on the ground
Here are the birds that fly so high
Spreading their wings across the sky
Here are the children fast asleep
And in the night, the owls do peep.
Book: Bear’s New Friend by Karma Wilson
Rhyme: Owl Song
I’m a great big owl, as you can see
I live high up in a tree
All the other birds wake me up when they play
Because I like to sleep all day.
Book: Sleeping Cutie or Little Hoot
Closing Song: Thank You Clap
My hands say thank you with a clap, clap, clap.
My feet say thank you with a tap, tap, tap
Clap, clap, clap, tap, tap, tap.
And now we say goodbye
