Welcome To Storytime! [tune: “Twinkle, Twinkle” ]

Welcome, welcome everyone,
Now we're here, let's have some fun.
First we'll sing the ABC's,
then we'll read and sing with me.
Welcome, welcome, everyone,
Now we're here let's have some fun.

Rags

My little puppy, his name is Rags, he eats so much that his tummy drags.
Big floppy ears and a tail that wags, and when he walks, he zig zag zags.
Flip, flop, wiggle, waggle, zig zag.
When I whistle he never obeys, he always runs the other way.
He doesn't have a pedigree, but I love him and he loves me.
Flip, flop, wiggle, waggle, zig zag!

Five Happy Puppies

Five happy puppies were playing in the sun.
This one saw a rabbit, and he began to run.
Four curious puppies were playing in the sun.
This one saw a butterfly, and he began to race.
Three excited puppies, playing in the sun.
This one saw an orange cat, and he began to chase.
Two bored puppies were lying in the sun.
This one tried to catch his tail, and he went round and round.
One lonely puppy, sitting all alone. He was so quiet, he never made a sound.

BINGO [Tune: BINGO]

There was a farmer had a dog,
and Bingo was his name-o.
B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O
and Bingo was his name-o.

The Paws on the Dog [Tune: Wheels on the Bus]

The paws on the dog go trot, trot, trot.
Trot, trot, trot, trot, trot, trot.
The paws on the dog go trot, trot, trot.
All through the town.

The ears on the dog go flop, flop, flop...
The nose on the dog goes sniff, sniff, sniff...
The tongue on the dog goes lick, lick, lick...
The bark on the dog goes woof, woof, woof...
The tail on the dog goes wag, wag, wag...
The people with the dogs go, "SIT!"

The More We Read Together [Tune: “The More We Get Together]

The more we read together, together, together,
The more we read together, the better it is!
'Cause reading and singing and talking together,
Is how you learn the six skills for reading by six.

Hope you can join us at our next Preschool Storytime at Antioch Library!
