Baby & Me Storytime

Presented at Bellevue Public Library on Tuesday, December 17 and Thursday, December 19, 2013.

Pat-a-Cake by R.A. Herman, illustrated by Olga and Aleksey Ivanov

I'm So Glad to See You
(tune: “Frere Jacques”)

Where is (child’s name)? (echo)  
There (s)he is! (echo) 
I’m so glad to see you! (echo) 
Peek-a-boo! (echo) 

The adults introduce themselves and their little ones, then we sing this song for each child.

Ten Little Tootsie Toes
(tune: "One Little, Two Little")

Take advantage of your little one's bare feet and enjoy this song together!

One little, two little,
Three little tootsies,
Four little, five little,
Six little tootsies.
Seven little, eight little, 
Nine little tootsies,
Ten little tootsie toes!

Ten little, nine little,
Eight little tootsies,
Seven little, six little,
Five little tootsies,
Four little, three little,
Two little tootsies,
One little tootsie toe!

Jingle Bells

Dashing through the snow,
In a one-horse open sleigh,
O'er the fields we go,
Laughing all the way!

Bells on bobtail ring,
Making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight!

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh, what fun it is to ride in a
One-horse open sleigh! (repeat)


Icka Backa Soda Cracker

Icka backa, soda cracker,
Icka backa boo! (play peek-a-boo!)
Icka backa soda cracker,
I love you! (give your little one a BIG hug!)

As I Went Walking to Town One Day
(Underlined words and syllables represent the 
stressed beats in this rhyme.)

As I went walking to town one day,
Oh, it was a sunshiny day!
As I went walking to town one day,
met a cow along the way!
And what do you think that cow did say?

What other animals could you meet along the way? 
What sounds do they make?

Two Little Hands

Two little hands go clap, clap, clap.
Two little hands lay in my lap.
Two little feet go bump, bump, bump.
Two little feet give one big jump!
Two little hands reach oh, so high.
Two little hands wave bye, bye, bye.

Our activity this week was Jigsaw Puzzles!

Library News:
This week we welcomed new friends Eliza, Elianna, Ana Maria and Lexi.

Our next Baby and Me Storytime will be Tuesday, January 7 and Thursday, January 9, 2014.

Each Baby & Me 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).
