Books and Songs That Translate Well Into Flannel Stories

Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? by Bill Martin, Jr.

Five Purple Penguins
Five purple penguins, as happy as can be
The first one said, “Let’s jump into the sea!”
The second one said, “The water’s like ice!”
The third one said, “That’s not so nice!”
The fourth one said, “Let’s bask in the sun!”
The fifth one said, “Hey – that’s no fun!”

So, the five little penguins took a leap and a dive
And splashed in the water, 1,2,3,4,5
Three seconds later – out they popped!
And stood once again on the top of a rock

Have You Ever Seen A Penguin?
(Tune: “Have You Ever Seen A Lassie?”)Have you ever seen a penguin?
A penguin. . .a penguin!
Have you ever seen a penguin swim this way and that way?
Swim this way and that way . . . and this way and that way?
Have you ever seen a penguin swim this way and that? (point)
Repeat with “slide” and “wobble”

If You're A Penguin & You Know It
(Tune: "Happy & You Know It")
If you're a penguin and you know it, flap your wings (flap, flap)
If you're a penguin and you know it, flap your wings
If you're a penguin and you know it
Then your wings will surely show it
If you're a penguin and you know it, flap your wings.

If you're a penguin and you know it, waddle your feet (waddle, waddle)
If you're a penguin and you know it, waddle your feet
If you're a penguin and you know it
Then your feet will surely show it
If you're a penguin and you know it, waddle your feet.

If you're a penguin and you know it, eat some fish (mmm…good)
If you're a penguin and you know it, eat some fish
If you're a penguin and you know it
Then your fish will surely show it
If you're a penguin and you know it, eat some fish.

Penguin Went Over the Iceberg
(Tune of: "The Bear Went Over the Mountain")
The penguin went over the iceberg,
The penguin went over the iceberg,
The penguin went over the iceberg to see what he could see
To see what he could see, to see what he could see
The penguin went over the iceberg to what he could see.

Peter Penguin
(Tune: “On Top of Old Smokey)
Meet Peter Penguin, he munches on P’s
If he eats the wrong food, it might make him sneeze
He likes popcorn & pizza, and pineapple, too
What will you serve him, if he eats with you?

Ten Little Polar Bears
One little, two little, three little polar bears
Four little, five little, six little polar bears
Seven little, eight little, nine little polar bears
Ten little polar bears on the ice

How do you keep warm, little polar bears?
It’s cold where you live, little polar bears!
How do you keep warm, little polar bears?
Ten little polar bears on the ice

We wear warm wool scarves, little polar bears…
We cuddle with our friends, the little polar bears…
