Story Mix for Three to Six: Little Llamas

The popular children's picture book series around a sweet and lovable Llama character is a favorite amongst children here at the Gail Borden Public Library.  Our selection of rhymes and stories this week at Story Mix bring even more Llama fun to your child.  Children will learn through repetition and rhyming sounds, syllables and words.   Repetition and rhyming help children understand word construction and meaning based on sound. The actions you can perform in each song help children count, help them learn what to do when they go outside, and how to express emotions when feeling sick.

Ten Little Llamas
One little, two little,
Three little llamas
Four little, five little,
Six little llamas
Seven little, eight little,
Nine little llamas
Ten little llamas wear pajamas!

Let's Put on our Mittens Rhyme
Let’s put on our mittens and button up our coats
Wrap a scarf snugly around our throats
Pull on our boots and fasten the straps
And tie on tightly our warm winter caps
Then open the door and out we go
Into the soft and feathery snow

Where is Mama? (Sung to the tune of where Is thumbkin?)
Where is Mama?
Here I am!
Here I am!
How are you today, sir?
Very well, I thank you.
Run away! Run away!
Repeat with other members of the family such as Papa, Sister, Brother

We read these books at Story Mix:
