From Storytime

Bark, George by Jules Feiffer
Also available in: audiobook | e-audiobook | video | e-video

What's going on with George? When George's mother says bark, George meows, or quacks!̀.



     Five little puppies all digging a hole (hold up five fingers)

     One fell in and started to roll… (roll your hands)

     She rolled to the bottom, she didn’t get hurt.

     How many puppies are left digging dirt? (count how many puppies are left)

     (Repeat until all the puppies are at the bottom of the hole)

In this colorful story of a sloppy dog, you can count on a happy ending.



     There was a farmer who had a dog, and Bingo was his name-o.

     B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O, and Bingo was his name-o.

     There was a farmer who had a dog, and Bingo was his name-o.

     (clap)-I-N-G-O, (clap)-I-N-G-O, (clap)-I-N-G-O, and Bingo was his name-o.

     (Repeat, continuing to remove one letter at a time and clapping instead, until all letters are gone)
