Baby Story Time – November 21, 2014

While our family story time shrank a little today, our baby story time had its biggest crowd yet. Most of our babies are pre-mobile, though, so it’s still a very easy-going, manageable group.

Welcome Song: Hello, Friends!

Touching Rhymes/Tickles

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

Book 1:Ten in the Den / John Butler



  • A hippopotamus got on a city bus
  • Bumping up and down in my little red wagon
  • Pudding on the plate
  • The grand old duke of york

Book Two: Please, baby, please! / Spike Lee


Movement Songs

  • Love somebody, yes I do
  • Zoom, zoom, zoom
  • The elevator song

Goodbye song: Goodbye, Friends!

We ran out of time today! Ten in the Den was so much fun. All the parents joined in with the singing, and rolled their babies over as we sang “roll over, roll over”. But that book takes a while to sing! I had intended to do a few new soothing songs at the end, but we just ran out of time. We had quite a few new faces in the audience, so we sang everything a few extra times, just to give everyone a chance to participate and feel comfortable.

As I’ve said before, I really feel like I’m finally getting the hang of baby time, and I really look forward to it every week.

I won’t be doing story time next week, as I’ll be off at a Mother Goose training workshop, and I’m going to miss my little group so much, I hope they will miss me!
