Free Pre-K Paper Craft-Noah’s Ark-Song-Book Review-Noah Builds an Ark

Noah Builds an Ark book

“Noah Builds An Ark,” written by Kate Banks has the New Testament story in mind but in this story Noah is a young boy who wants to save the animals in his backyard. He builds them an ark, not just like the one in the Bible, but just the right size for the animals he is trying to make comfortable before a big storm. Love this book because it shows the love this little boy felt towards creatures who could not care for themselves.

SONG

Little Ark

By Vicky Manning

(Tune of “I’m a Little Teapot.”)

I’m little ark,

Big and tall.

I carry animals

Big and small.

When the rain comes down

Hear Noah call,

For all animals big and small.

Unicorn Craft-Children’s Book Review

Unicorn book

This book was written in 2000 by Jane Yolen, illustrated by Ruth Sanderson. If I closed my eyes and you asked me what a unicorn looks like the picture behind my closed eyes would be very close to the picture you will see in this book, “Where Have the Unicorns Gone.”  The story is about knights, trains, and unicorns. I love the art in this children’s book because it mystical. The white unicorns are beautiful.

SONG

Fishing Raft

By Vicky Manning  (Tune of Oh my Darling Clementine)

 

On the river is a raft

That I built by myself.

I can take you down the river,

or you can travel by yourself.

 

On the river you can fish

With a cane pole I made.

After fishing in the river

We can dock in a shade.
