We LOVE Dr. Seuss!

This Toddler Storytime was presented at Bellevue Public Library on Wednesday, February 26, 2014.


Too Many Daves (from the book The Sneetches and Other Stories) by Dr. Seuss

The Foot Book by Dr. Seuss


Everybody Say Hello!
(tune: "London Bridge")
Everybody say hello, say hello, say hello,
Everybody say hello, hello Wesley!

(Wesley is my turtle puppet who pops out of my apron pocket whenever we sing this song.  Then he sits quietly on his rock and listens to the stories and sings along with us.  At the end of storytime he says goodbye to the children, gives them high fives, eats pretend food from their hands, blows kisses, and plays hide and seek!

Good Morning!
(tune: "Frere Jacques")

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

Toes are Tapping
(tune: “Skip to my Lou”)

Toes are tapping, tap, tap, tap. 
Toes are tapping, tap, tap, tap. 
Toes are tapping, tap, tap, tap. 
Tap your toes my darling.

Feet are stomping, stomp, stomp, stomp…

Feet are dancing, dance, dance, dance…


Dr. Seuss-themed games!

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).
