Library Storytime Theme: Colors

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

First book:
Red Sings from Treetops: A Year in Colors by Joyce Sidman

Transition song (Tune: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star):
Red and orange and green and blue
Shiny yellow purple too!
These are the colors that we know
Way up high in the great rainbow
Red and orange and green and blue
Shiny yellow purple too!

Second book:
But Where Is the Green Parrot? by Thomas & Wana Zacharias

Transition game:
If you’re wearing RED,
Put your hands on your head.
If you’re wearing BLACK,
Then touch your back.
If you’re wearing BROWN,
Touch the ground.
If GREEN is what you wear,
Then growl like a bear.
If you’re wearing BLUE,
Put your hand on your shoe.
If you’re wearing PINK,
Then think and think.
If you’re wearing GRAY,
Have a nice day.
If ORANGE is what you wear,
Then touch your hair.
If you’re wearing WHITE,
Squeeze your hands real tight.
If you’re wearing PURPLE,
Say, “Murple gurple.”
If you’re wearing Yellow,
Wave to your fellow.
You’re all looking mighty fine,
And that’s the end of the color rhyme.

Third book:
I Know A Wee Piggy by Kim Norman

Goodbye song (Tune: London Bridge is Falling Down):
Now it’s time to say goodbye,
Say goodbye, say goodbye,
Now it’s time to say goodbye,
I’ll see you next time.
