The Things I Can Do by Jeff Mack


 Memoirs of a Hamster by Devin Scillian, illustrated by Tim Bowers


Good Morning!
(tune: "Frere Jacques")

Good morning! (echo)
How are you? (echo)
I'm so glad to see you! (echo)
Wesley is, too! (echo)

If You're Ready For a Story
(tune: "If You're Happy and You Know It")

If you're ready for a story, take a seat.
If you're ready for a story, take a seat.
Clap your hands and stomp your feet,
Make your hands all nice and neat.
If you're ready for a story, take a seat.


Open, Shut Them

Open, shut them,
Open, shut them.
Give a little clap, clap, clap!

Open, shut them,
Open, shut them.
Lay them in your lap, lap, lap!

Waving, waving, waving, waving,
High up in the sky, sky, sky.
Wave to me,
I'll wave to you.
Now let's all say goodbye, bye, bye!


Today's ECRR Activity Highlight was PLAYING!
We played with fun houses and tunnels, as well as our beanbag collection!  Here are some pictures from our playtime:

Library News:
A reminder that there will be NO morning storytimes next week.  However, we will be presenting a marionette puppet show on Wednesday, October 9 at 10 AM.  Brian Henning of the Urban Prairie Puppet Company will be performing "Adventures in Wonderland".  These puppet shows usually last less than 30 minutes, so they are a great introduction to live theater for youngsters.  As always, this show is free.  I hope you can join us!

Each Toddler Storytime includes activities that support one or more of the five early literacy practices identified as essential in helping your child develop the skills they need before they can learn to read. The five practices – singing, talking, reading, playing and writing –were developed for Every Child Ready to Read®, an initiative of the Association for Library Services for Children (ALSC) and the Public Library Association (PLA).
