Talk about a busy (but awesome) day! After my preschool visit I was off to a community health center to talk about books and babies with a parent-child drop-in group.
I led a mini-baby time with the group, then shared some tips and tricks for helping baby prepare to read, and talked about some of the many free resources available at the library.
Here’s what we did!
Welcome Song: Hello, Friends!
- The moon is round
- Two little eyes
- Everybody knows I love my toes
Book 1: Do Cows Meow? / Salina Yoon
- A hippopotamus got on a city bus
- You be the lemon
- Bumping up and down in my little red wagon
Book 2: Monkey and me / Emily Gravett
- Dancing with bears
- My bonny lies over the ocean
- Zoom zoom zoom
- The elevator song
- Rain is falling down
- You are my little panda bear
The program was really gentle and relaxed, and I was able to sit on the mats and chat with everyone – the atmosphere was very similar to a Mother Goose session, which is smaller than a typical baby time, with a slower pace.
I really appreciate the amazing opportunities I get to go out into the community and connect with people around my neighborhood!
