Did you know that we had squirrels in the library last winter? Well we did! And this week during storytime we'll have squirrels again, only this time they'll be made of felt for a squirrel and acorn game we'll play. Here's what else is coming up.

This Week's Action Rhymes:
1 Grey squirrel, grey squirrel
Swish your bushy tail
Grey squirrel, grey squirrel
Swish your bushy tail
Wrinkle up your little nose
Hold a nut between your toes
Grey squirrel, grey squirrel
Swish your bushy tail

2 These are the brown leaves fluttering down, And this is the tall tree, bare and brown. This is the squirrel with eyes so bright, hunting for nuts day and night

3 Whisky, frisky, hippity-hop, up he goes to the tippity top
Whirly, twirly, round and round, down he scampers to the ground
Furly, curly, what a tail, tall as a feather, broad as a sail
Where's his supper? In a shell, Snappity, crackety, out it fell

Plus, painting with acorns! See you there.
