Today at storytime we had a guest visitor - therapy dog, Charlie!
There are so many good picture books about dogs that it was hard to select the best and brightest, but here is what we read today :
Rrrralph by Ehlert
Ivan the terrier by Catalanotto
A dog is a dog by Shaskan
We shared the book prop for Rose Robart's The Cake that Mack Ate
Everyone participated in much tail-wagging during the doggy-version of "If you're happy and you know it ... wag your tail". Lots of barking and tail-chasing took place.
Here is a simple fingerplay that was shared :
10 little doggies went out one day
To dig in the yard and play, play, play
10 were spotted
And 10 were not,
And at dinnertime they ate a lot!
