Here are the stories and songs we presented during Baby Storytime at Jefferson Branch Library in December 2023.
Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell

Each animal arriving from the zoo as a possible pet fails to suit its prospective owner, until just the right one is found. Movable flaps reveal the contents of each package.

Dancing Feet! by Lindsey Craig and illustrated by Marc Brown

Easy-to-read, rhyming text depicts different animals dancing.

 

I love you through and through at Christmas, too by Bernadette Rossetti-Shustak

Parents explain in rhyme all the different ways that they love their child at Christmastime as they engage in typical seasonal activities, encounter decorations, and demonstrate how good they are.

Songs

Opening Rhyme

Peek-a-boo

· Peek-a-boo, peek-a-boo

(Cover face with hands two times)

· I see you! I see you!

(Point to children)

· I see your button nose

(Point to nose)

· I see your tiny toes

· (Point to toes)

· I see you! Peek-a-boo!

(Cover face with hand two times)

 

“One Finger”

· One finger

· One thumb

· One arm

· One leg

· One nod of the head

· And fall into bed!

(Pick baby up and bring down to your lap)

 

I Love You

· I love you

· Your button nose

· Your eyes, your ears,

· Your knees and toes.

· I love you

· Up to the sky

· Past the moon

· And stars so high,

· If you feel alone and scared,

· Always know that I’ll be there,

· Just like one and one makes two,

· You love me

· And I love you.

 

Ending Song

“Clap, Clap, Clap your Hands”

· Clap, clap clap your hands

· Clap your hands together

· Clap, clap, clap your hands

· Clap, your hands together

 

· Bounce, bounce, bounce up high

· Bounce, up high together

· Bounce, bounce, bounce up high

· Bounce, up high together

 

· Give, give, give a hug

· Give a hug together

· Give, give, give a hug

· Give a hug together

 

· Wave, wave, wave good-bye

· Wave good-bye together

· Wave, wave, wave good-bye

· Wave good-bye together
