Specific skill focused on: Australian Animals


Song: “Shake My Sillies Out” (Raffi, Singable Songs for the Very Young)

Book: Over in Australia: Amazing Animals Down Under by Marianne Berkes

Song: “Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport” (The Wiggles, Hot Potatoes: The Best of the Wiggles)

Book: Koala Lou by Mem Fox

Thoughts: Again, this storytime came from the Collaborative Summer Library Program manual (page 85), sort of. The original idea was a “Global Playground” theme, and I focused on Australian animals and their movements. So a bit of a stretch, but it was a fun storytime nonetheless!
