Raps, Songs, and Poems
My writing career actually started by writing library raps and describing how I use them in two School Library Journal articles. One of my raps—"The Goodbye Rap"—was even turned into the picture book Wave Goodbye. All of the following raps can also be found in my book Something Funny Happened at the Library.
Feel free to use any of the library raps with kids. I’ve had a lot of people put their name in the beginnings, such as “I’m Rappin’ Sue and you know what I’ll do ...�? or “I’m a rappin’ guy and I’ll tell you why, I’m tellin’ kids about books, etc.�?
