My Body Storytime

The elephant was an eye grabber! We talked about them having bodies different than ours, but they can still play ball! And the drums can play a rhythm, all that hair! And the eyes, one of them has a star! How are eyes like stars?

This is our system-wide opener. Starting with the same song lets the kids know we’re ready to start, and builds their confidence.

Fun book, and great pictures! We practice the rhythm first, then they’re more comfortable to jump in during the story.

One of the boys changed our no to “No, thank you!” (which was really the only part they followed along with). Does anyone know a good storytime song with this message?


The favorite of the session! The illustrations really drew them in, and the emotions were easy to understand. This book did get conversational, I had a small group and they were interested in finding things on the pages.

I didn’t have access to this story anymore, and tried to remember how it went for a puppet version. It was okay, but not amazing. And the slide made one kid say “We did three books in a row!” when we showed the next one.

This flows so well, with dynamic illustrations and simple text. Great for storytime!

I used this before with great response, but the crowd today was just much more chill. Still a favorite.

Great to take your time with, so few phrases you can go slow and let the beautiful photos be absorbed by the kids.  Can extend this with questions “What is a star like?” and then reveal the next passage.
