A lot of the parents who have been watching my video story times have mentioned that they watch my story times as bed time stories. One of my colleagues suggested that I do a series of bedtime stories. What a great idea!

Simon Says (Sleepy Version)
I plan on wearing pajamas and a sleeping cap, so Simon decided to go the sleeping cap route as well. 🙂
Simon is going to lead the kids through relaxing yoga poses and breathing exercises.
We’ll be using these free yoga cards and posters to show the poses to the kids. Get them here.
Five little stars shine and shine some more,
One fell to the earth and then there were four.
Four little stars, happy as can be,
One fell to the earth and then there were three.
Three little stars in a sky so blue,
One fell to the earth and then there were two.
Two little stars, having lots of fun,
One fell to the earth and then there was one.
One little star left left all alone,
That one fell to earth and then there were none.
The moon came out- what a pretty sight!
He waved to the stars and he said goodnight.
My assistant Travis, who plays the guitar is in charge of the music, and I honestly don’t know what he’s picked out yet. I asked to to lean toward lullabies.
