Picture books on youtube

My laptop sits on the kitchen bench most days. This is where the kids also sit for 3 meals and morning/afternoon tea most days and where they sit waiting (ever so patiently ha!) for what ever meal is coming their way next. So somedays these links on youtube and the associated 5 minutes of peace I get are just too good not to share. Some aren't the best quality but my kids (aged 2 and 4) enjoy them anyway. Hope yours enjoy them too :)

We're going on a bear hunt by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury
Owl babies by Martin Waddell
Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter
The Wonky Donkey by Craig Smith
Hairy Maclary by Lynley Dodd
Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion
The Mixed Up Chameleon by Eric Carle
The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle

And this is a funny one a friend shared on facebook- my 4 year old loved it but my 2 year old wasn't so sure! 
Sesame St lullabies. 
Would love to hear of more if you have any links to share.

the Sesame St one has Elijah in fits every time it comes on TV - then I have to put up with his guitar playing and singing for the next half hour

We're big fans of you-tube childrens content in this household. In fact, Rascal hardly ever watches telly, but she knows her way about the clips that we have downloaded onto realplayer (saves bandwidth!). Thanks for these links, there are a few that we haven't tried.

My daughter is a big fan of the fire truck song by Ivan Ulz! It's very catchy and has all of us singing along :-)

My little girls really enjoyed these stories this afternoon thanks! Our favs were even there. I have always loved the Tiger who came to tea and the new fav the wonky donkey. Thanks for some fun. Oh and we all loved the purple crayon clip - so clever and cute.

They're great! I cant believe I haven't found these yet! On occasion we watch the Toucan song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKkG8Xbb8Fc or Rhino, anaconda, dinosaurs, iguana songs. They're super fun!

It seems everything is on you tube these days. My Jack is doing NCEA level 3 Calculus and you can follow calculus equations on You Tube. Oh how studying has changed. He did not get the maths whizz kid stuff from me!

Thank you so much for sharing these links! I had already discovered We're Going On A Bear Hunt, but not the rest, so we've been watching some with breakfast this morning. Love the Peter Rabbit ones!! There are some cool Winnie the Pooh ones...I think it's The Piglet Movie and comes in parts of 10 mins each. Youtube is great!

Hi Megan, knowing you, I thought you might like to take a look at this blog: http://www.playingbythebook.net/ This lady is obviously a keen bookworm, stay at home mum, perhaps a homeschooler, (probably an ex-teachera!) and bases really cool learning activities for her children around literature, taking one book at a time and integrating a whole lot of learning into it.

Great list and we are fans of 'books' online too :)

great list - thanks.

Amanda said...

Love this list!! My girls got Kindle Fires for Christmas so now I am busy loading these books for the car etc. Also bookflix.com and storylineonline.com are good online book tools. If you do not have a bookflix password you can find on on Pinterest. They should just make that free to the public!! Most schools have subscriptions and hand out their passwords to parents. I may make a post about educational options for the Kindle Fires and I may link you up at http://www.imamomtoo.blogspot.com! Thanks for the info!

Thanks for the list! I added them to a collection I have that I love to play for my little ones...http://happytobehomeschoolingmychildren.blogspot.com/2011/01/preschool-youtube-learning-clips.html

Amber said...

Ooh, thank you! Going to have to explore these further. My children will enjoy some of these for sure. You might like to know the Harold and the Purple Crayon video has been removed.
