Flannels, Songs and Story Extensions

Books That Translate Well Into Flannels
Henrietta the Clumsy Hippo by John Greaves
Hilda Must Be Dancing by Karma Wilson

Did You Ever See A Hippo?
(To the tune of: Did You Ever See A Lassie?)
Did you ever see a hippo?
A hippo, a hippo
Did you ever see a hippo dance this way and that?
Dance this way and that way
And this way and that way
Did you ever see a hippo dance this way and that?

... Hop this way and that?
... Twirl this way and that?
... Pose this way and that?

Hippo Hop Hokey Pokey
(To the tune of: Hokey Pokey)
You put your clean foot in
You take your dirty foot out
You put your clean foot in
and you squish all about
You do the Hippo Hop and then you hop down in the mud

Repeat with other body parts...

Tommy Thumbs
Tommy Thumbs up, Tommy Thumbs Down
Tommy thumbs dancing all around the town
Dance them on your shoulders, Dance them on your head
Dance them on your knees, then tuck them into bed
