Letter N Storytime

on February 6, 2014

Opening: Shake My Sillies Out – Raffi

Book: The Perfect Nest – Catherine Friend


(Such a fun book! The characters are dynamic and entertaining, and the ending delightful. I did skip most of the chick pages.)

Activity: Elephants Have Wrinkles (for Nose) – Video here

Elephants have wrinkles, wrinkles, wrinkles,

elephants have wrinkles, wrinkles everywhere.

On their nose, no one knows Why-ai-ai-ai.

(continue with other body parts)

Book: Alfred’s Nose – Vivienne Flesher


(Skipped quite a few pages, the story and pictures are lovely though, and fit right in with Nose.)

Activity: Last Night I Had A Dream – Laurie Berkner

(This was okay, not fantastic. We acted out various animals in the ‘dream’.)

Book: No! That’s Wrong – Zhaohua Ji


(This is a consistent hit. With underwear so prominently featured, how could it not be!)

Activity: The No No Bird (Andrew Fusek Peters)


(So much fun turning this story about a contrary bird into a puppet story.)

Book: Dog’s Noisy Day –Emma Dodd


(The kids were pretty unsettled during both of the programs with this book. The puppets much have gotten them too hyped up! Good thing it’s bright, simple, and interactive.)

Activity: Instruments

(Then the kids got to make noise of their own with instruments.
