Old MacRainbow’s Pumpkin Farm
There’s a funny kind of farm where colored pumpkins grow.
Planted by a farmer named Old MacRainbow.
You can see a red one, a red one, a red one.
You can see a pretty red pumpkin on the farm.
(repeat with other colors)
Ending:
What a funny farm with pumpkins row by row –
Colorful pumpkins planted by Farmer MacRainbow!

Five Muddy Pigs
Down at the farm by the big blue lake.
There were 5 muddy pigs for goodness sake.
One jumped in and the mud washed away.
Now that pig is ready to play!
Repeat with 4, 3, 2 and 1.

Literacy Tip

Make shared reading interactive. Before you begin a book, ask your child to look at the cover and predict what it will be about. Allow your child to turn the book’s pages. Ask questions as you read. When you finish the book, ask your child to retell the story.  Tip courtesy of Saroj Groting at earlylit.net.
