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!

We added some photos to Buzz's Zoo Book today!  Here are some pictures I took when we visited the bears at the Henry Doorly Zoo!

These are Andean Bears:

This Sun Bear bear seems to be talking to Buzz!  I bet he gets LOTS of sun sitting up high on those tree trunks!

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).
