105 Ways to Give a Book

ABC Storytime: N is for...

My computer is giving me grief today, so I’m keeping this short and sweet. If you have “N” book suggestions for storytime, leave them in the comments. I would have liked to have provided more titles, but I’m giving up in frustration. Stupid computer.

The Letter N

Book: The Gift of Nothing, by Patrick McDonnell

Book: Our Nest, by Reeve Lindbergh, or The Perfect Nest, by Catherine Friend

Rhyme: “Little Birdie”
Little birdie in your nest.
Little birdie it’s time to rest.
When the sun comes out to play.
Little birdie — fly away!
Book: The Napping House, by Audrey Wood

Song: “Brother John”
Are you sleeping, are you sleeping?
Brother John, Brother John.
Morning bells are ringing.
Morning bells are ringing.
Ding Ding Dong, Ding, Ding, Dong
Book: Whose Nose and Toes, by John Butler

Action Rhyme: “I Have a Nose”
On my face I have a nose,
And way down here I have ten toes.
I have two eyes that I can blink
I have a head to help me think.
I have a chin, and very near,
I have two ears to help me hear.
I have a mouth with which to speak,
And when I run, I use my feet.
Here are arms to hold up high,
And here’s a hand to wave good-bye.
(Point to body parts as mentioned.)

How about "No, No, Yes, Yes," by Leslie Patricelli? I reviewed it here: http://infantbibliophile.blogspot.com/2009/01/few-favorite-board-books-at-14-months.html

There are also Not a Stick and Not a Box for slightly older kids. Or Nursery rhyme books (I have a few reviewed on my site).

I'll check out the books you named - thanks!

"N' is a hard one. All I can think of is "There's a Nightmare in my Closet" by Mercer Mayer.
