Hippity Hoppity!

Just in time for Spring, our Storytime this week featured books about rabbits! We read about good and bad rabbits in Nobunny's Perfect by Anna Dewdney and about Little White Rabbit who wonders about everything in the book by Kevin Henkes. Really Rabbits by Virginia Kroll tells a good story about two rabbits who leave their cage at night and help around the house! Finally, Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems is about Trixie, a little girl who loses her toy rabbit in a very unusual and funny place!

Rabbits were hopping around the children's room after each child made a rabbit hat to wear! A simple headband with stand up (or flopped over) ears was decorated with as many pastel pompoms as necessary! Each hat was unique!


Here's our poem - "Robbie the Rabbit." But we never said "Robbie"; we just substituted our own names. It worked! Try it!

Robbie the rabbit is fat, fat, fat. (Pat your belly)
His soft little paws go pat, pat, pat. (Tap one hand with the other)
His soft little ears go flop, flop, flop. (Hands on head for ears and wave up & down)
And when Robbie runs he goes hop, hop, hop!
