105 Ways to Give a Book

ABC Storytime: G is for...

Oh, computer! I missed you sooo much!

My computer needed a little adjustment and left me stranded with Bill’s laptop hooked up to the Internet. Honestly, it was only a step up from using an Etch-A-Sketch and smoke signals. Good news for Bill, though, since I am totally on board with him getting a new computer. In fact, I’m surprised at the depth of his patience for having waited so long. He’s a good man.

Anyway, now to the letter G. There aren’t great songs for this letter, as far as I know, and I’m not sure if the fingerplay rhymes are in public domain. Hmmm. I’ll just give you extra books.

The Letter G

Book: Giraffes Can’t Dance, by Giles Andreae

Book: The Three Silly Girls Grubb, by John and Ann Hassett

Book: Gorilla! Gorilla! by Jeanne Willis

Book: The Great Gracie Chase, by Cynthia Rylant

Book: Goldilocks and the Three Bears, by James Marshall

Book: The Gruffalo, by Julia Donaldon

Book: Grandmother Winter, by Phyllis Root

(Okay, here’s one rhyme I’m pretty sure is common knowledge.)

Action Rhyme: “Grandma’s Glasses”
These are Grandma’s glasses.
This in Grandma’s hat
This is the way she folds her hands.
And lays them in her lap.
Here are Grandpa’s glasses
And here is Grandpa’s hat,
And here’s the way he folds his arms
And takes a little nap.

(Add motions to the rhyme — dainty for Grandma, bigger for Grandpa.)

Giraffes can't dance was one of my son's Christmas gifts last year and he still laughs when we read it!
