Here is a song I wrote in honor of the 2005
national summer reading theme, "Dragons, Dreams, and Daring Deeds".
You can see the current year's theme at
King County Library
System--Summer Reading Program
Five Little Dragons
(sung to the tune of Five Little
little dragons went out to play
Over the hills and far away
Mother dragon said, “It’s time for your snack.”
But only 4 little dragons came back
(repeat with 4, 3, 2, 1,)
Worried mother dragon began to breathe fire
But the tears she shed made the fire expire
Mother dragon said, “It’s a VERY good snack!”
And all of the five little dragons came back.
accordion book prop to use
as you sing the song!
It’s a wonderful way to let children see how numbers get smaller and bigger.
Children will love it because it will be a very long book when opened! (You
will need to use helpers to hold it!)
