A storytime theme sure to come up at some point during the Summer Reading Program is nocturnal animals. Beginning with one of the owls I made from Sunflower Storytime’s template, I made animals to place on the flannelboard while we listen to the song, “Nocturnal Animals” by Nancy Music. Both lyrics and music are available at the site.
On a moonlit night when the stars come out
There are nocturnal animals all about.
Each verse introduces a different animal beginning with an owl.
Cat (mine is grey so it shows up on the nighttime flannelboard. Easy lyric adaptation)
Dormouse (looks more like a short-legged capybara or a hamster, but hamsters are nocturnal so “it’s all good”)
The nighttime gang
