Pajama Storytime

Presented by practicum student Bridget Mueting at Bellevue Public Library on Tuesday, April 9, 2013.

Song of Night by Katherine Riley Nakamura

When the World is Ready for Bed by Gillian Shields

Time for Bed by Mem Fox


The More We Get Together

The more we get together, together, together,
The more we get together the happier we’ll be.
For your friends are my friends,
And my friends are your friends.
The more we get together the happier we’ll be.

The more we sing…
The more we smile… 
The more we laugh…
The more we play… 
The more we get together...

Rock-a-bye Baby

 Rock-a-bye baby on the treetops.
When the wind blows the cradle will rock.

When the bird sings the baby will smile.
And fall asleep happy in a short while.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky,
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are!

When the blazing sun is gone,
When he nothing shines upon.
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.
Twinkle, twinkle little star,
How I wonder what you are!

Brahm’s Lullaby
(A link to this tune may be found here.)
Lullaby and goodnight,
Go to sleep darling bright.
Go to sleep, sleep deep,
And then you will not weep.
Lullaby and goodnight,
Lullaby and goodnight.
Go to sleep darling bright,
And everything will be alright.


It’s Time to Say Goodbye
(Tune: “Three Blind Mice”)

It’s time to say goodbye
It’s time to say goodbye
Time to wave goodbye
Time to wave goodbye
It’s time to give a kiss and a hug
To say farewell for our time is done
I hope to see you again little one
It’s time to say goodbye
It’s time to say goodbye

It's time to say hello to everyone! Everyone was a lovely singer!

Time to find the ladybug! Where could he be?

Found a comfy spot to listen to the stories!

One more song to say goodbye!

A Note From Bridget
Since this is my last story time as a practicum student I would like to take a moment to thank those who made this possible. First off I would like to say thank you to Mrs. B and Tammy. Their knowledge and guidance during this time has been more than I could have asked for in learning how to create story times such as this one and others along with how to interact with the children and parents who have attended them. Secondly I would like to thank Guadalupe Mier for allowing me to conduct my practicum at the Bellevue Public Library. Finally I would like to thank everyone who came to the story times. Your patience and willingness to allow me this opportunity to share with you and your children has made this experience one of the best.
