Storytime: Tall

 Storytime landed on Abraham Lincoln's birthday. We focused on one characteristic of Abraham Lincoln - tall.

Hello SONG from Dragon Tales: Dragon Tunes
Who's Short? Who's Tall by Kailee Herbst
Small Medium Large by Emily Jenkins, illustrated by Tomek Bogacki
Very, Very Tall SONG from Wiggleoworms: Wiggleworms Love You
Abraham Lincoln by Pamela Walker
Our Abe Lincoln adapted by Jim Aylesworth, illustrated by Barbara McClintock
I'm So Big SONG from Stuart Stotts & Tom Pease: Celebrate: a Song Resource
Too Tall Houses by Gianna Marino

The library owns a wooden storytelling set for The Three Little Pigs as well as Goldilocks and the Three Bears. I borrowed two houses and a tree to recreate the setting of Too Tall Houses. The characters in the book are an owl and a rabbit. I placed finger puppets next to the houses to indicate house ownership. (Yes, the rabbit is in a top hat, but that's the only finger puppet rabbit available.)

Good-bye, So Long, Farewell, Toodle-oo SONG from Hap Palmer: Two Little Sounds Fun with Phonics and Numbers 

Craft Project from Banta friends: Heart Ornament from pipe cleaners and beads

The craft project focused on the current holiday (St. Valentine's Day) rather than the storytime theme.
