Little Pigs at Storytime

NCKLS subscribes to the Children’s Programming Monthly from ALA Editions.  This month, little piggies make an appearance at storytime.  The author of the article is Rob Reid.   He suggests reading If You Give a Pig a Pancake by Laura Joffe Numeroff.  Then have the children join in with the traditional nursery rhyme, “This Little Piggy.”  Five Little Piggies by David Martin can then be read.  Finish up with,  “I’m a Little Piggy” sung to the tune of “I’m a Little Teapot.”

I’m a little piggy
Short and stout.
Here are my ears
Here is my snout.
When I see the
Farmer in the dell
I oink, oink, oink
and wiggle my tail!

Try to incorporate movement and music in your storytimes to keep those little hands clapping and those little feet stomping!  Let me know if you would like to check out this month’s issue.
