Back with ABC Storytime. As always, feel free to name your favorite letter Q books in the comments.

The Letter Q

Book: Little Quack, by Lauren Thompson

Song: “Six Little Ducks”
Six little ducks that I once knew,
Fat ones, skinny ones, fair ones too.

Chorus: But the one little duck
with a feather in his back,
He led the others with a
Quack, quack, quack.
Quack, quack, quack!
Quack, quack, quack!
He led the others with a
Quack, quack, quack!

Down to the water they did go.
Wibble, wobble, wibble, wobble to and fro.

Home from the water they did come,
Wibble, wobble, wibble, wobble, ho-hum-hum.

(BTW, the tune is here.)
Book: Stella, Queen of the Snow, by Marie-Loise Gay

Nursery Rhyme: “The Queen of Hearts”
The Queen of Hearts,
She made some tarts,
All on a summer’s day;
The Knave of Hearts,
He stole the tarts,
And took them clean away
Book: Quiet! by Paul Bright

Song: “What Begins with Q?”
What begins with Q?
What begins with Q?
We all know.
We’ll tell you so.
What begins with Q?

Quack begins with Q…

Queen begins with Q…

Quiet begins with Q...

(This is song to the tune of “Farmer in the Dell” and can be used for any letter — but is probably never needed more than when you get to Q.)
Book: QPootle5, by Nick Butterworth

Alternate Books: I don’t know. You tell me.

Thanks for the great ABC storytime posts! Quick as a Cricket by Audrey and Don Wood or The Quilt Story by Tony Johnston are both good Q books.

The Quangle-Wangle's Hat, by Edward Lear, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, is my favorite Q book. (At $69.00 though, this o-p book is going to have to wait.)
