Today we had a special visit from Scrappy the dog, who helped us read these "paw"esome storybooks!
Bark, George! by Jules Feiffer
George the puppy's mother is in for a big surprise when she takes him to the veterinarian to find out why he does not bark.
Doggone Dogs! by Karen Beaumont
Ten unruly dogs get loose at the park, and when they are captured by the dog-catcher, they work together to effect their escape and return home.
The Pigeon Wants a Puppy by Mo Willems
Pigeon really wants one and he'll take good care of it--but does he know what he's getting into?
Ten Little Doggies Fingerplay:
Ten little doggies went out one day (hold up 10 fingers)
To dig in the dirt and play, play, play (pretend to dig)
Five were spotted, and five were not (show one hand at a time)
And at dinner time they ate a lot! (pretend to eat)
Little Puppies Fingerplay:
Little puppy one fell asleep in the sun (pretend to sleep)
Little puppy two likes to play with my shoe (point to shoe)
Little puppy three always kisses me (point to cheek)
Little puppy four ran out the door (fingers "run")
Little puppy five watched a crow dive (hands dive)
Little puppy six likes to do little tricks (pretend to sit up like dog)
Little puppy seven counted stars in heaven (look to sky and count)
Little puppy eight jumped over the gate (jump)
Little puppy nine sat down to dine (pretend to eat)
Little puppy ten fell asleep in the den (pretend to sleep)
Can you count the puppies? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10!
