Storytime Online - Zombies Don't Eat Veggies

Updated: Oct 27


Hello everyone! I want to apologize for not having this post up last week. The Youth Department was not in at the library! We hope you are all excited for Zombies Don't Eat Veggies by Megan & Jorge Lacera! Leanna and I have put together a bunch of fun activities and crafts for the little ones. Starting on Monday, October 19, the kits will be available to pick up for our online storytime.


"Zombies Don't Eat Veggies!" by Megan & Jorge Lacera


Mo Romero is a zombie who loves nothing more than growing, cooking, and eating vegetables. Tomatoes? Tantalizing. Peppers? Pure perfection! The problem? Mo’s parents insist that their niño eat only zombie cuisine, like arm-panadas and finger foods. They tell Mo over and over that zombies don’t eat veggies. But Mo can’t imagine a lifetime of just eating zombie food and giving up his veggies. As he questions his own zombie identity, Mo tries his best to convince his parents to give peas a chance.

Hooky Spooky

(tune: “Hokey Pokey”)

Put your zombie arms in, put your zombie arms out,

Put your zombie arms in and shake them all about

Do the Hooky Spooky and everybody shout

“That’s what it’s all about! BRAINS!”

Put your right foot in…

Put your left foot in…

Put your head in…

Put your zombie self in…

The Haunted House

(tune: “Wheels on the Bus”)

The zombie in the house goes “Brains! Brains! Brains!”

“Brains! Brains! Brains! Brains! Brains! Brains!”

The zombie in the house goes “Brains! Brains! Brains!”

On Halloween.

The ghost in the house goes “Boo! Boo! Boo!”

The steps in the house go “Creak, creak, creak”

The people in the house go “Eek, eek, eek”

We Are String Beans

(Tune: “Mary Had A Little Lamb”)

We are string beans, green and fine,

Green and fine, green and fine.

We are green beans, green and fine.

Growing on a leafy vine.

We are carrots, orange and long…we make you big and strong.

We are onions, round and white….we make soup taste right.
