Preschool Storytime- Letter N

Opening Song
If You Listen and You Hear Me

Letter of the Week

Hide & Seek by Il Sung Na
This book is a quiet read that had the kids listening beautifully. I incorporate counting with this book and we talk about all the ridiculous places the animals are hiding.


It's a Tiger! by David LaRochelle
This book is perfect for storytime! The kids all get to yell "It's a Tiger!" and they really enjoy how silly it is. At the end of the book, in both sessions, I had preschoolers want to guess what would happen next to the crocodile in the book.

I'm Not Cute!
This is a very sweet book, and it had the letter 'N' on the cover!

Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems
Anything by Mo Willems is gold.

Rhyme/ Movement

At this point, my preschoolers were going wild. The last book really worked them up, and we had a large group of friends that get each other going. So, while I rarely use this rhyme in preschool time, I needed something that was going to bring them all back down to read. I chose...

Where is Thumbkin
This excited the preschoolers because almost everyone knew the words. The lullaby aspect helped tremendously and everyone was quite calm after this.

Push Here by Herve Tullet
Throughout this book there were many gasps and "How did you do that?!". At the end I think about half of my crowd was convinced I was using magic.  I did not correct them.
