Let's be Friends Storytime!

Here’s a fun storytime about friendship that your 1-3 year old children are sure to love!

Sing: Storytime Song (Tune: This is the Way We Wash Our Hands)

Now this is the time for storytime, storytime, storytime
This is the time for storytime
We love to read!
Oh… we love to read!

Storyline Online: 

Listen to Ernest Borgnine as he reads The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister

Sing: Will You Come and Play With Me? (Tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb)

Will you come and play with me?
Play with me, play with me?
Will you come and play with me?
Will you be my friend?

Action rhyme: Friends

I have two friends, (hold up 2 fingers on left hand)
And they have me; (hold up 1 finger on right hand)
Two friends and me, (bend each from left to right)
That’s one, two, three (hold up while saying 1,2 3)

Sing: The More We Get Together (Check out Raffi’s version here.)

The more we get together, together, together
The more we get together
The happier we’ll be
Cause your friends are my friends
And my friends are your friends
The more we get together
The happier we’ll be!
