from elbows to antlers

This week our storytimes were about our bodies; we heard lots about elbows and toes, fingers and noses, but we also read fun books like Eric Carle's The Mixed-Up Chameleon, which shows a chameleon who wants what makes other animals special, i.e. elephants trunk, deer antlers, until he's quite a hot mess...a "think outside the box," book about the body (and animals). Here are some of the books we used for all three of our storytimes (Toddler, 4s & 5s, Family)

Dancing Feet, Lindsey Craig, illus. Marc Brown

Here Are My Hands, Bill Martin Jr. & John Archambault, illus. Ted Rand

From Head to Toe, Eric Carle

The Mixed-Up Chameleon, Eric Carl

All of Baby, Noes to Toes, Victora Adler, illus. Hiroe Nakata


I have NEVER met a kid who didn't LOVE this book!
