Blogging From A to Z: Hugs

9 Apr

Letter H.jpg

During the month of April, I’ll be participating in the Blogging From A to Z Challenge.  My theme for the month is Storytime Plans From A to Z.  Each plan will have eight stories as well as four songs, fingerplays or rhymes to match the theme!  As you can see, I’ll try and attribute where I found all of this fun (and often you can find it in multiple places).  My goal is to make storytime planning a little easier on myself in the future and to make storytime planning for other librarians easy as well!

Book List:

  1. Hug by Jez Alborough
  2. Big Bear Hug by Nicholas Oldland
  3. Won’t Yoy Be My Hugaroo? by Joanne Ryder
  4. Hugs From Pearl by Paul Schmid

Songs & Rhymes:

Everybody Knows I Love My Toes
Everybody knows I love my toes.
Everybody knows I love my toes.
I love my shoulders, my knees, my elbows, and my nose.
But everybody knows I love my toes.

Other verses: chin and shin, lips and hips, eye and thigh, and any other rhyming body parts!

Different Kinds of Kisses
Grandma kisses
grab cheeks and squeeze
Fish kisses
purse lips and move them
Movie star kisses
blow big ones
Rabbit kisses
wiggle nose
Dog kisses
stick out your tongue and lick

Skinnamarink
Skinnamarinky dinky dink
Skinnamarinky do,
I love you!

Skinnamarinky dinky dink
Skinnamarinky do,
I love you!

I love you in the morning,
And in the afternoon
I love you in the evening,
Underneath the moon…

Skinnamarinky dinky dink
Skinnamarinky do,
I love you!

Ten Little Hearts
One little, two little, three little hearts,
Four little, five little, six little hearts,
Seven little, eight little, nine little hearts,
Ten hearts say “I love you”.
