Halloween Storytime

Max Costume | Miss Meg's Storytime
Miss Meg is Max!

Last week was Halloween and we had a Spooktacular storytime!

We Enjoyed these Halloween Themed books:

Where the Wild Things Are
Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.
I started with this book because I expected that very few of the kids (or parents!) would know what I was dressed as.
wheres my mummy
Where’s my Mummy by Carolyn Crimi, Illus. by John Manders
Most of the kids really liked the illustrations in this book and one girl in my toddler crowd got a bit scared!
creepy carrots
Creepy Carrotsby Aaron Reynolds,
illus. by Pete Brown
Because I take every opportunity I can to read this book…
sparkling halloween
Happy Sparkling Halloween
by Elizabeth Spurr, illus. by Colleen Madden

We Enjoyed these songs and rhymes:
Monster, Monster
source: Storytime Katie
Monster, monster, turn around
Monster, monster, touch the ground
Monster, monster, reach up high
Monster, monster, touch the sky
Monster, monster, touch your nose
Monster, monster, grab your toes
Monster, monster, touch your knees
Monster, monster, sit down please

Two Little Bats
tune: two little blackbirds

Two little bats, sitting on a hill
One named Jack, and one named Jill
Fly away Jack, Fly awake Jill
Come back Jack, Come back Jill

Two little bats, sitting on a stick
One named Slow, and one named Quick
Fly away Slow, Fly away Quick
Come back Slow, Come back Quick

Two little bats, sitting on a cloud
One named Soft, and one named Loud
Fly away Soft, Fly away Loud
Come back Soft, Come back Loud

Two little bats, flying through the sky
One named Low, and one named High
Fly away Low, Fly away High
Come back Low, Come back High

The Eentsy, Weentsy Spider
source: traditional
The eentsey weentsey spider went up the water spout.
Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain.
Then the eensey weensey spider went up the spout again.
