I love, love, love the positive image of the relationship between a black girl and her father presented in this book! I’m saving this one for Father’s Day next year. Just beautiful.

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 WHITE FOXES
Out in the woods under the sun,
Up ran a white fox and that made one.
One white fox under a sky so blue,
Up ran another and then there were two.
Two white foxes sitting by a tree,
Up ran another and then there were three.
Three white foxes trotting by the shore,
Up ran another and then there were four.
Four white foxes watching a beehive,
Up ran another and then there were five.
Five white foxes sunning by the shore,One went swimming and then there were four.
Four white foxes underneath a tree,One chased a squirrel and then there were three.
Three white foxes looking for something new,One found some berries and then there were two.
Two white foxes having so much fun,One chased a butterfly and then there was one.
One white fox enjoying the bright sun,It ran home for supper and then there were none.
