Dog Storytime, Friday, July 29 @ 10:30


Hark, hark the dogs will bark at Gulf Beaches storyhour this Friday!  

Play: The big and little Scoobies put in an appearance and then we sang our Big and Little song.

Books
The Pigeon Wants a Puppy by Mo Willems. Always a hit.
Oh No, George! by Chris HaughtonI am a major fan of Chris Haughton even though he's only written two books. I invited the kids to chorus in on the "Oh No, George!" and the involvement really pretty them in.  Then we did "Well done, George!" with upraised power fist.
I'm the Best by Lucy Cousins. The nice little moral wrapped up in Cousins' bright and cheerful illustrations has worked in earlier years but not this one.
Ivan the Terrier by Peter CatalanottoAs I turned each page to a familiar new story, 3 bears, 3 little pigs, etc., the children waited for Ivan to put in his appearance. Pictures and text bounced along perfectly together. Didn't work this year.
Dog's Colorful Days by Emma Dodd.  We had to read this because it was our craft! I could tell there was a five year old in the audience because she knew what all the plus 1s were,
Dog Rules by Jef Czekaj.  Dogs raising a bird, pretty funny.
Widget by Lyn Rossiter McFarlandMy little fuzzy stuffed white dog sends this sweet little tale right over the top. It's a perfect storyhour book. It has barking dogs, meowing kittens and a very, very nice story about a little dog who finds a home.

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read. -- Groucho Marx  (See Bark, George!)


Songs
One, two, three
Doggie’s got a flea, doggie’s got a flea
And now it’s on me! 
One, two, three
Doggie’s got a flea, doggie’s got a flea
And now it’s on me! 
It’s on my nose, It’s on my toes,
It’s on my ear, It’s over here
It’s on my tum, It’s on my thumb
One, two, three
Doggie’s got a flea, doggie’s got a flea
And now it’s on me! 
One, two, three
Doggie’s got a flea, doggie’s got a flea
And now it’s on me!
Craft: 
Dog's Colorful Day:  We'll add our own dots to poor Dog






Oh I wanna be a dog, I wanna wag my tail
Chase cars knock over garbage cans
Bit the lady that brings me the mail
Oh I wanna be a dog
I wanna dig big holes
I wanna chase French poodles and basset hounds
and look for telephone poles
Oh I wanna have dog breath
I wanna learn to growl
Scratch fleas and ticks, and run after sticks
The moon's gonna make me howl
