Family Storytime: Cats!

HCPL - Storytime

This week’s storytime theme is “cats”! Here are some wonderful books we might read in storytime:

Stack the Cats by Susie Ghahremani

Meeow and the Pots and Pans by Sebastien Braun

Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes Story by Eric Litwin, Art by James Dean

This Little Kitty by Karen Obuhanych

Here are some songs and/or rhymes we might do in storytime:

Song: I’m a Little Kitty Cat (tune: I’m a Little Teapot)
I’m a little kitty cat,
Nice and sweet,
Here are my whiskers,
And here are my feet,
When I go out hunting, mice beware,
Or you might just have a scare!

Song: Soft Kitty
Soft kitty, warm kitty,
Little ball of fur,
Happy kitty, sleepy kitty,
Purr, purr, purr

Song: Cool Cat
Hey there friend, you’re a real cool cat (finger gun pointing)
You got a lot of this (roll to the left)
And you got a lot of that (roll to the right)
So come on in (motion to come over)
And get down (fingers point down) ch ch ch ch ch ch
To the left (point to your right/their left) ch ch ch ch ch ch
To the right (point to your left/their right) ch ch ch ch ch ch
Up in the air (point up) ch ch ch ch ch ch
And get down (point down) ch ch ch ch ch ch

See you there!
