Preschool Storytime Ideas
Knights - revised
Many fairy tales feature knights, but often these are too long for most preschool storytimes. Here are some tried and true storytime picture books featuring knights. For a craft project, you can make a knight's coat of arms. Copy some shield shapes on cardstock, and let the kids color them. Add aluminum foil to make the shields look like metal.
Aitken, Amy. RUBY THE KNIGHT.
DePaola, Tomie. THE KNIGHT AND THE DRAGON.
Emberley, Ed. KLIPPITY KLOP.
Funke, Cornelia. THE PRINCESS KNIGHT.
Hazen, Barbara Shook. THE KNIGHT WHO WAS AFRAID OF THE DARK.
Mayer, Mercer. THE BRAVEST KNIGHT.
O'Connor, Jane. SIR SMALL AND THE DRAGONFLY.
Thomas, Shelley Moore. GOOD NIGHT, GOOD KNIGHT.
Ziefert, Harriet. NIGHT, KNIGHT.
