You provide the comfy reading spot, we'll send you the rest!

Around the World

Hello, Storytime Friends!
We are so excited to have you join us for another DIY Storytime with the Helen Plum Library! Today we’re going to read, sing and rhyme Around the World!
If you enjoy these books and songs, you can always find more with your Helen Plum Library card on Hoopla, TumbleBooks and Just for Kids. If you don’t currently have a library card, you can sign up here.
Settle in for Storytime! At the Library, we always start and end storytime the same way — with music! Through this repetition each week, children can begin to predict events and better engage in these activities. Choose your cozy spot and let’s get started.

Sing: “We Wave and Sing Hello”

(Tune: “The Farmer in the Dell”)

We wave and sing hello,
We wave and sing hello,
When we’re at home for storytime,
We wave and sing hello!

Repeat with stomp, clap

Rhyme: “Go, Go, Go!”

We can fly in a plane
We can ride on a train
In a boat we can row, row, row!

We go near, we go far
In a bus or a car
We go high, we go low
So, where should we go?

Read: Starry Safari by Linda Ashman

Hop in your jeep and turn up the volume, we’re going on a musical starry safari!

Move: “Over the Deep Blue Sea”

Join the pirate ship in “Over the Deep Blue Sea.

Goodbye Song

Thanks for being a DIY Storytime family! Until next time, happy reading!
Tickle the clouds.
Tickle your toes.
Turn around,
And tickle your nose.
Reach down low.
And reach up high.
Storytime’s over — wave goodbye!
