BOOK/PROP - White Rabbit’s Color Book by Alan Baker
For this one I have three flower pots (red, blue & yellow) and one clear container. My pots are the paint and the water and I tell the story using flannel or colored animals. This time I used a white mouse instead of a white rabbit to tell the story. Super cute. I really need to get a picture of it!
Slowly, slowly, very slowly Slowly, slowly, very slowly up the garden rail Slowly, slowly, very slowly creeps the garden snail Quickly, quickly, very quickly all around the house. Quickly, quickly, very quickly runs the garden mouse.
