Infant Storytime – Spring Session – Baby’s Body


Our storytime was all about baby’s body – eyes, nose, ears, toes… and bellybuttons!

SOME OF THE STORIES & ACTIVITIES WE SHARED:

Nose to toesFrom eyes to ears, tummy to nose, legs to toes, there’s a lot for baby to discover.  Victoria Adler’s book all of  baby nose to toes is a great book for infants.  The babies in storytime loved the sweet illustrations – they were bold in impact, yet simple and gentle in line.  A good bonding book that teaches baby about his/her body parts.

 Charlie the Chicken by Nick Denchfield also talks about a baby’s body parts – but that baby is a little chick!  This is a great pop up book loved by babies and adults .  Charlie the Chicken loves to eat so we see how he gets his “big tummy”, his” big beak”…well it goes on!  Of course there’s a twist at the end when we learn there is a bit of genetics involved.  [Here’s a hint:  Charlie’s mother is a BIG HEN!]  A fun engaging story that also teaches body parts.
