Week 3 and our theme this week is Hide-and-Seek. Actually, it's more complicated than that. While Monday storytime for 2s will have this theme, because the library is closed this Thursday for Veteran's Day, my Thursday storytime groups will have this theme on December 2. However, I'll also be doing Ms. Eileen's Friday storytimes (she's off to Disney, LUCKY!) and we'll do a 4/5 year-old version of this theme.

This Week's Action Rhymes:
One fine Thanksgiving Day
Two little turkeys came out to play
One turkey says, "We'll play hide-and-seek,
I'll go hide, and you don't peek"
Will he hide high, will he hide low
Will he hide far, I don't know
Will he hide left, will he hide right
Or will he hide back out of sight?
The other little turkey then looks around
But his turkey friend can't be found
Did he hide high, did he hide low
Did he hide far, I don't know
Did he hide left, did he hide right
Or did he hide back out of sight
"Aha, I found you! Come on out!"
"Gooble Gooble Gooble!" both turkeys shout.
