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, or Sally Jean, the Bicycle Queen, by Cari Best

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, or Quick as a Cricket, by Audrey Wood

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

I used to sing the song Six Little Ducks a lot when my son my little. Haven't sung it in years. Now I'll have the tune stuck in my head all day! Great memories. Thanks for posting.

I just read The Very Quiet Cricket to Lily for the first time today. She LOVES it - a new fave. Our board book is the version that has the cricket sounds at the end and she lit up when we turned to that page. I had to read it twice in a row just so I could watch her again, it was so cute! (Lily is 5 months old now)

The Queens Feet is a cute book about how a queen's feet won't behave and get her in trouble with the "royal family"
