Library Storytime Theme: Snow/Winter

Intro song (Tune: Did You Ever See A Lassie?):
The more we read together
Together, together
The more we read together
The happier we’ll be
Cause your friends are my friends
And my friends are your friends
The more we read together
The happier we’ll be

It is snowing, it is snowing (make snowing motions with fingers)
On my neck, on my neck (touch neck with both hands)
I need a scarf, I need a scarf (show children a scarf)
On my neck, on my neck (touch neck with both hands)

On my hands, on my hands (hold up hands)

On my hands, on my hands (hold up hands)

On my feet, on my feet (point to feet)
