Storytime at Home | Episode 3: “This Is Not My Hat” | Calgary Public Library


Today we’re gonna start off with our
first book, This is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen. This hat is not mine. I just
stole it. I stole it from a big fish. He was asleep when I did it. And he probably
won’t wake up for a long time. And even if he does wake up, he probably
won’t notice that it’s gone. And even if he does notice that it’s gone, he
probably won’t know it was me who took it. And even if he does guess it was me,
he won’t know where I am going. But I will tell you where I am going. I am
going where the plants grow big and tall and close together. It is very hard to
see in there. Nobody will ever find me. There is someone who saw me already but
he said he wouldn’t tell anyone which way I went. So I’m not worried about that. I know it’s wrong to steal a hat. I know
it does not belong to me, but I am going to keep it. It was too small for him
anyway. It fits me just right. And look, I made it
where the plants are big and tall and close together. I knew I was going to
make it. Nobody will ever find me me. The end. So we’ll do a little rhyme, a nice
one for fish. Let’s start off with A Little Bubble. Goes like so. Here’s a
bubble and here’s a bubble and a great big bubble I see. Shall we pop them? Are
you ready? One! Two! Three! Beautiful. Try one more time, we’ll go a little bit faster. Here’s a
bubble and here’s a bubble and a great big bubble I see. Shall we pop them? Are
you ready? One! Two! Three! Our last book we’re gonna read is Plankton is Pushy. Fish theme today. By
Jonathan Fenske. Why hello Mr. Mussel! I said hello Mr.
Mussel. Well, that is just rude. Let me tell you how this works. When I say hello
you say hello or hi or what’s up Plankton? Or how’s it going? Et cetera. So let’s
say we give this another whirl okay? Why hello Mr. Mussel! Really? Nothing? Grrrrrr. Perhaps I should slow it down just a wee
bit. Hello there Mr. Mussel. Hmmph. Say something! Anything!
Please! Wait. What’s this? Ladies and gentlemen the mussel speaks. Excuse me
you’ll have to speak up. I can’t hear you. Snap! Delicioso! Aha! I knew you could talk. The end.
