Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr., illustrated by Eric Carle


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

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

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are. 

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

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

Clap Your Hands, 1,2,3
(tune: “This Old Man”

Clap your hands, one, two, three.
Play a clapping game with me.
Now your hands have gone away.
* Bring them back so we can play!
(last time: “We’ll play this game another day!”)

Where is Baby?
(tune: "Frere Jacques")

Where is (child's name)?  Where is (child's name)? 
(Cover child's face with a blanket or scarf)

There you are!  There you are!
(pull cover away)

I'm so glad to see you!  I'm so glad to see you!

Peek-a-boo!  Peek-a-boo!

(cover and uncover child's face again)


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...

Cuckoo Clock

I'm a li...ttle cu-ckoo clock
Now I'm stri-king one o-clock.

Our activity this week was Board Books!

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).
