Patrons, 

Even now, libraries are here to help you learn, grow, and entertain the kids! Many public libraries in Nassau are offering residents without an existing library card a Digital Library Card, with access to things like ebooks, audiobooks, live tutoring, digital magazines, language courses, streaming video, test prep, and more. These cards will last until June 30th.

This week’s theme is: Rabbits

Books:
Duck! Rabbit! By Amy Krouse Rosenthal & Tom Lichtenheld

Rabbit Ears by Amber Stewart

Little Rabit Waits for the Moon by Beth Shoshan

Rhymes:

Five Little Bunnies
Five Little Bunnies standing by a door,

One hopped away and then there was four.
Four Little Bunnies sitting near a tree, 
One hopped away and then there were three.
Three Little Bunnies looking right at you, 
One hopped away and then there were two,
Two Little Bunnies enjoying the sun,
One hopped away and then there was one.
One little bunny sitting all alone, 
He hopped away and then there were none.

Funny Bunny Hop
Funny, little bunny goes hop, hop, hop!

Funny little bunny please stop, stop, stop!
Wiggle your ears and crinkle your nose.
Then wiggle, wiggle, wiggle right down to your toes.

Little Bunny
There was a little bunny who lived in the wood. (hold up two fingers)

He wiggled his ears as a good bunny should (wiggle on head)
He hopped by a squirrel. He hopped by a tree. (hop, hop)
He hopped by a duck. And he hopped by me. (hop, hop over fist)
He stared at the squirrel. He stared at the tree. (stare, stare)
He stared at the duck. But he made faces at me! (stare, make faces)

If You’re Hoppy and You Know It
If you’re hoppy and you know it, hop around
If you’re hoppy and you know it, hop around
If you’re hoppy and you know it
And you really want to show it
If you’re hoppy and you know it, hop around.
…shake your tail
…stomp your feet
…wiggle your nose
