Five Little Daffodils
One little daffodil had nothing much to do,
(hold up on finger)
Out popped another one, then there were two.
(hold up two fingers)
Two little daffodils were smiling at a bee,
(point to mouth and smile)
Out popped another one, then there were three.
(hold up three fingers)
Three little daffodils were growing by the door,
(slowly raise arms up above head like growing toward the sun)
Out popped another one, then there were four.
(hold up four fingers)
Four little daffodils were glad to be alive,
(clap hands and smile)
Out popped another one, then there were five.
(hold up five fingers)
Five little daffodils were wearing golden crowns,
(act like putting crown on head)
They danced in the breeze in green satin gowns.
(sway and dance around)

In My New Yellow Shirt by Eileen Spinelli
Reading Level: Ages 2 and up
What seems like a plain yellow shirt leads to a lot of fun use of a little boy’s imagination. He becomes a duck, a taxi, a lazy caterpillar and several other things. This book inspired the two crafts that I listed in this lesson. Have fun enjoying the book together and then take time to make a craft.
The Yellow Tutu by Kirsten Bramsen
Reading Level: Ages 3 and up
Here is another adorable child with a big imagination. Margo decides to wear her new yellow tutu in a different way. It makes her so happy as she pretends to be many things…that is, she is happy until she reaches school where she isn’t treated very well by the other children. But her friend, Pearl, comes to the rescue; as friends often do.
The Little Yellow Leaf by Carin Berger
Reading Level: Ages 3 and up
This makes a great story to read, in the fall, as the leaves start falling down. The one little yellow leaf isn’t ready to let go of the tree even though it’s the only leaf left around…or is it?
