This Baby & Me Storytime was presented at Bellevue Public Library on October 16, 17, & 19, 2017.

I Love You Through and Through by Bernadette Rossetti-Shustak, illustrated by Caroline Jayne Church


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.

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

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!

You can shake things up a little bit by changing the word "toes" to "fingers"!
You might also try singing:
"...three little kisses (or tickles, bounces or hugs) ...ten kisses for my baby!"

We Wave Our Scarves Together
(tune: "The Bear Went Over the Mountain")

We wave our scarves together,
we wave our scarves together,
we wave our scarves to-ge--ther...
Because it's fun to do!

We wave them up high!
We wave them down low!
We wave them in the middle...
Because it's fun to do!

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

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


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?

Cuckoo Clock

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


Our activity this week was hand puppets!

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).
