This Caterpillars Storytime, for babies from birth-24 months, was presented at Bellevue Public Library on June 6 & 8, 2017.


Hug You, Kiss You, Love You by Joyce Wan

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. 

My Little Baby
(tune: "Someone's in the Kitchen with Dinah")

My little baby is (sing child's name)
Cutest little baby I know-ow-ow-ow.
My little baby is (sing child's name)
And I love you so!

(Remember that babies love to hear their parents' voice, especially when it's associated with singing, cuddling, playing, and other pleasurable activities!)

These Little Fingers
(tune: The Wheels on the Bus")

These little fingers go wiggle, wiggle, wiggle,
Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle,
Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle.
These little fingers go wiggle, wiggle, wiggle,
And now they're on my head!

For additional verses, fingers can pat, rub, tap, tickle, etc. on various parts of Baby's body.

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

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

Action Rhymes:

Pizza, Pizza, Pumpernickel

Pizza, pizza, pumpernickel
(lightly tap legs in rhythm) 
my little baby shall have a tickle!
One on the nose,
(gently touch or squeeze Baby's nose)
and one on the toes
(gently touch or squeeze Baby's toes)
And one on the tummy where the pizza goes!
(gently pat or tickle Baby's tummy)

I Saw a Snake

I saw a snake go by one day,
(make slithering snake motion with arm)
riding in his Chevrolet.
(pretend to drive a car)
He was l...o...n...g,
(reach arms out to sides)
And he was thin.
(bring palms close together in front of body)
And he didn't have a chin!
(point to chin and shake head)
He had no chin, but what the heck?
(point to chin)
He had lots, and lots, and lots of neck!

(tickle Baby's neck)


Our enrichment activity this week was 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).
