Little Rabbit Who Liked to Say Moo

Little Rabbit Who Liked to Say Moo

Even though there’s still snow on my lawn, spring is officially here. To celebrate, I’m breaking out my bunny stories. I recently made a flannel for The Little Rabbit Who Liked to Say Moo. The preschoolers love this story. I like to sing the wrong versions of Old MacDonald to gear them up for this one. In addition to making the farm animals, I made speech bubbles to promote pre-reading skills.

Moo

Little Rabbit said, “Moo.”

Baa

Cow came over and asked Little Rabbit why he was saying Moo. Little Rabbit said that he liked to. Cow asked Little Rabbit if he could make any other sounds. Little Rabbit said, “Baa.”

Oink

Sheep came over and asked Little Rabbit why he was saying Baa. Little Rabbit said that he liked to. Sheep asked Little Rabbit if he could make any other sounds. Little Rabbit said, “Oink.”

Hee Haw

Pig came over and asked Little Rabbit why he was saying Oink. Little Rabbit said that he liked to. Pig asked Little Rabbit if he could make any other sounds. Little Rabbit said, “Hee Haw.”

Quack

Donkey came over and asked Little Rabbit why he was saying Hee Haw. Little Rabbit said that he liked to. Donkey asked Little Rabbit if he could make any other sounds. Little Rabbit said, “Quack.”

Duck

Duck came over and asked Little Rabbit why he was saying Quack. Little Rabbit said that he liked to. Duck asked Little Rabbit if that was his favorite sound. Rabbit thought about it for a minute and said, “No, this is my favorite sound.”

Woof

You can also use puppets for this story and use a lap board to put up only the speech bubbles.

Here’s a craft to use (you can color, paint, dot, etc.): Little Rabbit Craft

Here’s a video of how to do a one-person puppet show with this story:

If you don’t have all the puppets from the book, watch this clip to see how you can change the story to fit your needs:

    This is great. I am doing a “surprise” story time in a couple of weeks and this would fit perfectly. I like the early literacy component you used too!
