Early Literacy Fun for Little People

March's Fingerplay of the Month
This month's fingerplay features easy motions and dialogue to introduce the idea of people entering and exiting a scene. The play is a first step to getting creative and making up short theater productions, which you can do right here at the library!

Where Is Thumbkin? (Follow-along Video Plus Script)

Where is Thumbkin?
Where is Thumbkin?

Here I am!
How are you today sir?
Very well, I thank you!
Walk away.
Walk away.
