Baby & Me Storytime ~ June 11 & 12, 2014

This Baby & Me Storytime was presented at Bellevue Public Library on June 11 & 12, 2014.

Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes by Mem Fox, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury


This is the Way We Take a Bath

This is the way we take a bath,
Take a bath, take a bath.
This is the way we take a bath,
So early in the morning.

This is the way we pat our heads...
This is the way we give a hug...
This is the way we peek-a-boo!...
This is the way we wave hello...

Hello, Friends!
(tune: "Goodnight Ladies")

Hello friends.

Hello friends.
Hello friends.
We're glad you came today!

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!


Good Morning, Toes!

Good morning, toes,
Good morning, toes,
And how are you today?
I trust you had a good night's sleep
And now you're ready to play!

Help your little one identify other parts of his/her body as you continue this rhyme:
Good morning, knees...
Good morning, arms...
Good morning, tummy...

'Round and 'Round the Garden

‘Round and’ round the garden 
goes the little mouse.
(circle baby's tummy)
Up, up, up he creeps, 
(walk fingers up arm)
Up into his house. 
(tickle baby under arm)

‘Round and ‘round the garden 
goes the teddy bear.
(circle baby's tummy)
One step, two steps, 
(walk fingers up chest)
Tickle you under there! 
(tickle baby under chin

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.

Playtime Activity:  Bean Bags!

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).
