Totoro in the Garden

I’m a big Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli fan. Luckily my daughter loved My Neighbor Totoro when she was young, so I watched it over and over. That movie never gets old. Totoro works well with my “Garden” themed storytime.

This is a variation of the find the hidden object game:
Totoro is looking in the garden for an acorn to plant.

This Little Piggy

This is a vegetarian remix of the “This Little Piggy” rhyme.  As a child, I always thought it was a little gross to think about pigs eating cow flesh.  I was happy to find this alternate version. Hopefully, the piggy who went to market was going on a shopping trip and not to her doom. The felt pigs are based on the San-X character, Piggy Girl.

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear

This traditional rhyme has been modernized to make it a bit more inclusive. 
Also, I added the "Read a Book" line because...library.
