Programs on the go: Cat Secrets by Jef Czekaj

In our Move With Music program, we explore dance and music and stories and more. This week we talked about cats and mice…starting with this picture book about all the things your cat can’t tell you. Shhhhh– it’s a secret:

Use a deep voice and pat your thighs for the sound of a cat walking and tap your finger tips on your thighs and use a squeaky voice for the sound of a mouse walking for this interactive fingerplay:

The Cat and The Mouse (to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell)

The cat chases the mouse
The cat chases the mouse
Hi-ho the derry-o, the cat chases the mouse

The mouse runs away
The mouse runs away
Hi-ho the derry-o, the mouse runs away

(speed up)
The cat runs faster
The cat runs faster
Hi-ho the derry-o, the cat runs faster

(speed up)
The mouse gets away!
The mouse gets away!
Hi-ho the derry-o, the mouse gets away!

Ready to dance? Practice your kitty stretches and meow, flip your imaginary tale and comb your whiskers to this fun kitty song. Want a challenge? Make a “balance beam” out of masking tape and practice walking, hopping or twirling along the line.

Nice job Kitties! Read more stories about cats and stories about mice at the library!
