I Am A Cat by Galia Bernstein (theme Cats)

This week is National Library week! We have many things going on in our library but I’m going to try and get a book and craft up for each day. Today a small cat named Simon says he’s a cat, but Lion, Cheetah, Puma, and Tiger disagree. I think this story will be a big hit with the students at Storytime. It gives me a chance to teach about other animals that have things in common but are different in other ways also.

Big Cats, Little Cats

By Vicky Manning

Big cats pounce.

Little cats pounce.

Big cats hunt.

Little cats hunt.

Big cats stalk.

Little cats stalk.

Big cats climb

Little cats climb.

Little cats are loveable.

Big cats are not!

Tabby Cats

By Vicky Manning

Five yellow Tabby cats sitting on a yellow mat

Eating a fishy, fishy meal

Purr, purr.

One ran off chasing a mouse all around the house.

Now there are four Tabby cats sitting on a yellow mat

Eating a fishy, fishy meal

Purr, purr.

One ran off chasing a mouse all around the house.

Now there are three Tabby cats sitting on a yellow mat

Eating a fishy, fishy meal

Purr, purr.

One ran off chasing a mouse all around the house.

Now there are two Tabby cats sitting on a yellow mat

Eating a fishy, fishy meal

Purr, purr.

One ran off chasing a mouse all around the house.

Now there are one Tabby cat sitting on a yellow mat

Eating a fishy, fishy meal

Purr, purr.

He ran off chasing a mouse all around the house.

Five little Tabby cats returned to their yellow mat

Eating a fishy, fishy meal

Purr, purr.

Hungry Old Bullfrog by Vicky Manning

This weekend I was the storyteller for the Home and Garden Show in New Albany, MS. I wrote this fingerplay just for the event and the adults laughed harder than the children, so fun.

Hungry Old Bull frog

By Vicky C. Manning

Five little flies flying around the lilies.

Teasing old bullfrog, can’t zap me, can’t zap me

And there old bullfrog sat looking mighty silly

cause his eyes went this way, his eyes went that way

And he zapped a fly right off of the lilly.

Four little flies flying around the lilies.

Teasing old bullfrog, can’t zap me, can’t zap me

And there old bullfrog sat looking mighty silly

cause his eyes went this way, his eyes went that way

And he zapped a fly right off of the lilly.

Three little flies flying around the lilies.

Teasing old bullfrog, can’t zap me, can’t zap me

And there old bullfrog sat looking mighty silly

cause his eyes went this way, his eye went that way

and he zapped a fly right off the lilly.

Two little flies flying around the lilies.

Teasing old bullfrog, can’t zap me, can’t zap me

and there old bullfrog sat looking mighty silly

cause his eyes went this way, his eyes went that way

and he zapped a fly right off the lilly.

One little fly flying around a lilly.

Teasing old bullfrog can’t zap me, can’t zap me

and there old bullfrog sat looking mighty silly

cause his eyes went this way, his eyes went that way

and he zapped a fly right off the lilly.

No more flies are flying around the lillies

Teasing old bullfrog can’t zap me, can’t zap me

and old bullfrog is no longer looking silly

cause his tongue zapped this way, his tongue zapped that way

and he was full of flies on the lillies.
