From Storytime

The thankful book by Todd Parr

We danced to "It Takes Some Friends" because we were so thankful for our friends.


IF YOU'RE THANKFUL (inspired by jbrary version)

     If you’re thankful and you know it, clap your hands.

     If you’re thankful and you know it, give a hug.

     If you’re thankful and you know it, shout THANK YOU.

We bounced our parachute to "You're Welcome."
