105 Ways to Give a Book

ABC Storytime: U is for...

Usually I go though my old storytime programs to update them with new books and add alternatives. But I have left myself way too much to do today — starting with baking birthday brownies for eleven-year-old’s class, moving on to taxes (yes, I put it off), filling out a camp application, reviewing notes for tonight’s talk, finding a lost school form, planning a Girl Scout trip, and calling a sick mother. Also on the agenda are a worry, a concern, and a random aggravation. So if you want to add in some U books in the comments, be my guest.

The Letter U

Book: The Umbrella Party, by Janet Lunn

Song: “Rain, Rain”
Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
Little Anna wants to play
Rain, rain, go away.
Book: What’s Up, What’s Down? by Lola M. Schaefer

Rhyme: “Up and Down”
Put your arms up
Put your arms down
Put them through the middle
Move them all around
One arm to the left
One arm to the right
Give someone a hug
And hold on tight.
Book: I Wished for a Unicorn, by Robert Heidbreder

Rhyme: “Five Little Unicorns”
Five little unicorns playing in the sun
The first one said, “I’m having lots of fun.”
The second one said, “See my shiny horn?”
The third one said, “Of course, you’re a unicorn.”
The fourth one said, “I am as white as snow.”
The fifth one said, “So are we, you know.”
Book: The Ugly Truckling, by David Gordon

Song: “What Begins with U?”
(to the tune of “The Farmer in the Dell”)

What begins with U?
What begins with U?
We all know, we’ll tell you so.
What begins with U?

Umbrella begins with U.
Umbrella begins with U.
We all know, we’ll tell you so.
Umbrella begins with U.

Unicorn begins with U…

Up begins with U…

All I can think of for U books are authors whose first or last names begin with U. However, I am thinking of your worry, concern and random aggravation and wish I could send you something that would be a proverbial fresh breeze.

Aliens don't wear underwear is one of my son's favorite books when he was potty training.
