Lazy Bones

20 Oct

Happy Fall Everyone!

I’m in a festive fall mood and so I’m going to share with you a rhyming story I wrote called,  Lazy Bones.  I wrote it last week.  After a trip this weekend to the Cumberland Gap in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky and the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, I decided to add some photos to my story.   Where I didn’t have a photo, I added images from google.

Just for fun, I added two videos from youtube.  The first is a cute skeleton cartoon dancing to Michael Jackson’s Thriller.  The second is an easy craft for Q-tip skeletons.

I hope you enjoy the story.  Please share it with your little ones and leave me a comment.

“Lazy Bones get out of bed!”

Mama Bones, Papa Bones, Baby Bones said.

“Let’s go to the pumpkin patch.”

“Let’s go sleepyhead!”

Three orange faces giving off light.

Lazy Bones slumbers, sleeps through the night.

      Thank you Ann! I’m so glad you like it and that you found it in time to share with your kids. I hope you’ll let me know how they like it, especially if there’s anything awkward that could be tweaked. (not twerked) 🙂

    I cannot wait to read this to my grandson every autumn! I can already imagine us shouting to Lazybones to wake up, giggling and, of course, shaking our silly bones. Kudos to the author, Juliana Lee.

    I love it! I can’t wait to make it an autumn tradition reading it to my grandson! Just really darling. And… I’m from Kentucky, love the beach and that yummy purple goodness that is Grater’s raspberry chocolate chip. I have rescue dogs, I write, and I have a brand new grandbaby! How ’bout that!!

      (And you know there’s nothing better than Grater’s raspberry chocolate chip… except maybe reading to your grandson!)
