Baby Storytime 5/18/17

Book read: 
How do you make a baby smile? by Philemon Sturges

Where is Big Toe? (with scarves, to the tune of "Where is Thumbkin?", from Library Meow)
Where is big toe?
Where is big toe?
Here I am! Here I am! (touch baby's toe)
Wiggle, wiggle, big toe,
Wiggle, wiggle, big toe.
My big toe. My big toe.

Other verses can include:
Where is elbow...bendy, bendy elbow.
Where is tummy... tickle, tickle tummy.
Where are two eyes... peekaboo two eyes.
Where are two hands... happy clappy two hands.

This Is The Way (from Mel's Desk)
This is the way we wash our arms,
Wash our arms, wash our arms.
This is the way we wash our arms,
When we're in the bathtub.
(repeat using legs, tummy, head, etc)

I'm a little cuckoo clock (from KCLS)
Tick tock, tick tock, (rock baby)
I'm a little cuckoo clock!
Tick tock, tick tock,
It's one o'clock!
CUCKOO! (lift baby once)

Tick tock, tick tock,
I'm a little cuckoo clock!
Tick tock, tick tock,
It's two o'clock!
CUCKOO! CUCKOO! (lift baby twice)

Giddyup, Giddyup (from King County Library System)
Giddyup, giddyup ride to town, (bounce baby on your lap)
Giddyup, giddyup, up and down.
Giddyup fast, (bounce quickly)
Giddyup slow, (bounce slowly)
Giddyup, giddyup, WHOA! (dip baby backwards)

Wheels on the Bus

10 Little Bubbles (while popping bubbles, to the tune of "Ten Little Indians")

One little,
Two little,
Three little bubbles,
Four little,
Five little,
Six little bubbles.
Seven little,
Eight little,
Nine little bubbles.
Ten little bubbles in the air.

Literacy tip of the week: Bouncing rhymes help your child recognize the sounds and syllables in words. They can physically feel the movement on each part of a word.
