The Pigeon Wants a Storytime!

Today we had lots of storytime fun with our favorite mischievous and sly Pigeon.

Our first book this morning was:

Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay up Late!

Don't Let the Pigeon Stay up Late!    Don’t worry, the children did NOT give in to the Pigeon-he made it to bed in time 😉

After a few rhymes and finger-plays we went on to read:

The Pigeon wants a Puppy!

The Pigeon Wants A Puppy!

Here are some bird-themed rhymes and finger-plays to complement this storytime:

Two Little Blackbirds

Two little blackbirds sitting on a hill,
One named Jack.
One named Jill.
Fly away, Jack.
Fly away, Jill.
Come back, Jack.
Come back, Jill.

Over the hills and far away
Mama duck said, “Quack, quack, quack, quack,”
but only four little ducks came waddling back…
