Family Storytime: Dinosaurs!

HCPL - Storytime

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

Flapdoodle Dinosaurs by David A. Carter

Dinosaurs Galore! by Paul and Henrietta Stickland

Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs by Byron Barton

If the Dinosaurs Came Back by Bernard Most

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

Rhyme: Dinosaur, Dinosaur
Dinosaur, dinosaur, turn around!
Dinosaur, dinosaur, stomp the ground!
Dinosaur, dinosaur, make some claws!
Dinosaur, dinosaur, ROARS!
Dinosaur, dinosaur, big and tall!
Dinosaur, dinosaur, scary and small!
Dinosaur, dinosaur, shake the ground!
Dinosaur, dinosaur, sit back down!

Song: Dino-Pokey (Sung to: ” Hokey Pokey”)
You put your claws in
You put your claws out
You put your claws in
scratch ’em all about
You do the Dino-Pokey and you turn yourself about.
That’s what it’s all about.

More verses:
feet in/feet out/stomp them all about
teeth in/teeth out/chomp them all about
tail in/tail out/wag it all about

See you there!
