This Baby & Me Storytime was presented at Bellevue Public Library on January 18, 2018.


Where is Baby's Yummy Tummy? by Karen Katz


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. 

They're a Part of Me!
(tune: "Do You Know the Muffin Man")

I can make my hands go clap,
Clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap.
I can make my hands go clap.
They're a part of me!

Ideas for additional verses:

I can make make my feet go tap... eyes go blink... hands go pat... hands go wave...

One Bright Scarf
(tune: “Michael Finnegan”)

One bright scarf waiting for the wind to blow,
Wiggle it high and wiggle it slow.
Shake it fast and shake it slow.
Where did it go?

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

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


Little Bo Peep
(a rhyme with scarves)

Little Bo Peep
Has lost her sheep,
And doesn't know where to find them.
Leave them alone
And they'll come home,
(bring scarf out from behind back)
Wagging their tails behind them!

Tick, Tock, Goes the Clock!

Tick, tock, tick, tock, goes the clock.
Waiting for someone to knock, knock, knock.
My, oh my!  It's!
Quack! Quack!

Make up additional verses such as's a...pig!  Oink, oink!'s!  Neigh, neigh!'s a...snake! Ssssssss!

Our activity this week was 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).
