Baby Story Time – November 7, 2014

I’ve started doing a Mother Goose story time program at my branch, and it’s been a great opportunity to expand my baby time repertoire and learn new some great new material. My co-facilitator and I have been introducing each other to new songs and rhymes, and I’ve been incorporating them into my regular baby time programs. There are a few regulars from baby time who are in my MG as well, and it’s nice to see them twice!

Welcome Song: Hello, Friends!

Touching Rhymes/Tickles

  • Wake up, feet
  • Baby put your pants on
  • Say hello, can you touch your nose?
  • Roly Poly

Book 1: Sleepyheads / Sandra J. Howatt



  • Toast in the toaster
  • Oh I wish I were a little bar of soap
  • You be the ice cream
  • Bumping up and down in my little red wagon
  • The grand old duke of york

Book Two: Jump! / Scott M. Fischer


Movement Songs

  • Love somebody, yes I do
  • Mamma’s little baby loves dancing
  • What shall we do with lazy Katie?
  • Zoom, zoom, zoom
  • The elevator song

Soothing Songs

  • Rain is falling down

Goodbye song: Goodbye, Friends!

Oh, Jump! What a winner! We did this as an interactive picture book – caregivers lifted their babies every time we said “jump!” It was adorable – the babies were loving it! As I’ve said before, I love a book with jazzy text, and this one is just so much fun to read. I can’t wait to try it out with my big kids!

Sleepyheads is absolutely beautiful, the illustrations are just so charming. It’s a wonderful bedtime book, but my little wigglers were not in the mood for bedtime, so I shortened it considerably and it was still lovely.
