Gotta get a new box because now there are none.
There is an IMPORTANT THING I have to mention: to get this to work right you have to take it sloooooow. This may not even be a noticeable issue for some, but I write my 5-Little rhymes so that one could burn through the entire thing in a minute. But in practice I found this rhyme to be much too clunky. If you can think of a better re-write, let me know! . But it can still work as it is. Avoid tripping up on the longer lines by taking a more sedate pace.
For books I used in my storytime check out my Injury tag on Shelfari. (although it seems like I should have more books there…)
Fun fact! Shelfari lets you stack tags. My system is if it’s a picture book, I add “picture book”. If I have or will use it for storytime, I add “storytime”. Then goes any theme tags. So if you want to find all my storytime books for injury, click on “storytime” and “injury” tags. I have “picture books” separate from “storytime” because sometimes it’s a matter of preference or what age you’re reading to, so I don’t want to leave anyone out!
