Storytime With Briana- Music

We love music at Storytime! We clap our hands, stomp our feet, and use our voices to sing (sometimes as loud as we can!).  In this special Storytime, we had a ukulele accompany us for a few simple songs to take our music to a new level!

Books

 

Book Cover - Animal Music” title=“View this item in the library catalogue    Animal Music / Julia Donaldson and Nick Sharratt

This is a simple little book about animals getting together to play various instruments until it culminates in a harmonious multi-talented band! Julia Donaldson has her usual lovely rhymes, and Nick Sharratt delivers his usual bright, bold illustrations to create a simple fun book. This is great for talking about different instruments and the sounds they might make.

 

Book Cover - The Very Noisy Bear” title=“View this item in the library catalogue  The Very Noisy Bear / Nick Bland

In the Jingle Jangle Jungle, there was music in the air”. Music that wakes up Bear! But can he find the right instrument to help him play along?  If you love Nick Bland and his Very Bear series (and honestly, who doesn’t?) then this is another winner. It’s a delightful rhyming story with his usual quality illustrations, and the ending will raise a smile.

Book Cover - This Old Band” title=“View this item in the library catalogue

This Old Band / Tamera Will Wissinger and Matt Loveridge

What kind of instruments would be played by a band of cowboys out on the range? Find out in this book that introduces ten cowboys and the crazy sounds their instruments make! Written to the same rhyming scheme as ‘This Old Man’, you’ll find it impossible not to sing this book out loud, which made it a really fun one for storytime!

 

Book Cover - Music Everywhere” title=“View this item in the library catalogue  Music Everywhere / Maya Ajmera, Elise Hofer Derstine and Cynthia Pon

Photographs from around the world celebrate the joy children get from making music. This is a great book to read, as it shows real children playing and enjoying music all around the world. You can read this book a few ways, using the simple text on each page, or the captions for each photo explaining what instrument the child is playing, and where the photo was taken. It’s not often we can read a non-fiction book for Storytime, and this one was a rare treat.

 

Songs

Row Row Row Your Boat

Row row row your boat

Gently down the stream,

Merrily merrily merrily merrily

Life is but a dream.

Row row row your boat

Gently down the stream,

If you see a crocdile

Don’t forget to scream.

Ahhh!

Row row row your boat

Gently to the shore,

If you see a dinosaur

Don’t forget to roar.

Roar!

 

London Bridge is Falling Down

London Bridge is falling down

Falling down, falling down.

London bridge is falling down,

My fair lady.

 

Gerlumph Went the Little Green Frog

Gerlumph went the little green frog one day

Gerlumph went the little green frog

Gerlumph went the little green frog one day

And the frog went gerlumph lumph lumph

But we all know frogs go la de da de da

la de da de da, la de da de da

we all know frogs go la de da de da

They don’t go gerlumph lumph lumph

 

Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti

Doe, a deer, a female deer,

Ray, a drop of golden sun.

Me, a name I call myself,

Far, a long long way to run.

Sew, a needle pulling thread,

La, a note to follow sew.

Tea, a drink with jam and bread,

That will bring us back to do.

(This is a fun song to introduce musical notes and scales, and you don’t have to be Julie Andrews to sing it!)

Craft

Paper Plate Shaker

Materials

-2x paper plates

-a handful of dried beans

-Streamers

-Crayons

-Stickytape

Instructions

Decorate the back of both your plates with crayons (the side you don’t eat on).

Place streamers around the outside of one of the plates, and tape in place.

Turn one plate right-side up, and place beans in the center. Place the other plate right-side down over the top. Stickytape around the outside to secure.

You now have a rattly, shaking tambourine that can also be a drum!
