Did you miss our Superhero Storytime at the Farmer's Market this week? Don't worry, here's what you missed, plus a few more suggestions so you can create your own super storytime at home, complete with songs and stories.

Don't need a full storytime? Borrow a rhyme when you need a short distraction, or check out these materials and spend a few minutes reading together.

From Storytime


IF YOU'RE SUPER AND YOU KNOW IT (Tune: If You're Happy and You Know It)

If you’re super and you know it, stand like this [stand with your hands on your hips].

If you’re super and you know it, stand like this.

If you’re super and you know it and you really want to show it,

If you’re super and you know it, stand like this.

Continue with: 

say “up, up, and away”

show your muscles

use your superbreath to blow away villains

swing your golden lasso


Lucía the luchadora by Cynthia Leonor Garza



Superhero, superhero turn around; superhero, superhero touch the ground

Superhero, superhero put on your suit; superhero, superhero put on your boots.

Superhero, superhero jump up high; superhero, superhero fly, fly, fly!

Superhero, superhero shout hurray; superhero, superhero you’ve saved the day.

Superhero, superhero strong as can be; superhero, superhero, sit down, please.


Super Jumbo by Fred Koehler


THE SUPERHERO'S BODY (Tune: The Wheels on the Bus) from Literary Hoots 

The Superhero’s arms can flex and lift, flex and lift, flex and lift,

The superhero’s arms can flex and lift, all over town.

…Eyes go zap, zap, zap

…Legs run very fast

…Flies like zoom zoom zoom!

…Legs jump super high

....Needs a nap sometimes


Superbat by Matt Carr
