Baby Story Time!

If you're new here, check out my Intro to Baby Story Time. Things will make a bit more sense.

First book today was Where Does Maisy Live?. We read it after 'Hickory Dickory Dock' I love it because it's lift the flap! And it has animal sounds! Also, I just love Maisy. Bright bold pictures on a white background are perfect for babies. Also, there's something a little... odd... about many of the Maisy books. Like in Count with Maisy you count 10 fleas on an elephant. 10 fleas!

Our second book was Grandpa and Me which we did after Shake My Sillies Out, which we did after 'This is the way the ladies ride'. This one also combines two of my favorite things-- lifting flaps and pizza! Yummy.

Welcome Song:

Where is baby? Where is baby?

Peek-a-boo! Peek-a-boo!

Substitute the child’s name for “baby”

Mother Goose Rhymes:

Hey diddle diddle!
The cat played the fiddle
And the cow jumped over the moon!
The little dog laughed to see such a sight
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

Shoe the little horse.
Shoe the little mare.
But let the little colt run bare, bare, bare!

Pat baby’s feet in rhythm.

It’s raining it’s pouring,
The old man is snoring.
He bumped his head and he went to bed
And he couldn’t get up in the morning.

Rain rain go away,
Come again another day
Little baby wants to play
Rain Rain go away

Substitute baby’s name for “baby”.

Pease porridge hot, pease porridge cold
Pease porridge in the pot, 9 days old
Some like it hot, some like it cold
Some like it in the pot, 9 days old

Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck one, the mouse ran down
Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)

Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck two, the mouse said “woo”
Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)

The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck three, the mouse said “wee”
Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)

The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck four, the mouse said “no more”
Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)

Where Does Maisy Live?Bounces and Action Rhymes:

Tony Chestnut knows I love you
Tony knows, Tony knows
Tony Chestnut knows I love you
That’s what Tony knows

Point to the mentioned body parts—Toes and knees for Tony, Chest and Head for Chestnut and nose and eyes for Knows I.

Round about, round about,
Runs the little hare.
First it runs that way,
Then it runs up THERE!

Circle your fingers on baby’s palm or tummy, when “it runs up THERE!” tickle him or her under the arms.

This little train went up the track
Choo Choo and then it came back
The other train went up the track
Choo Choo and then it came back

Run your fingers up baby’s arm, tickling the armpit on “choo choo” and then running back down the arm. Repeat with the other arm.

This is the way the ladies ride:
Walk walk walk
This is the way the gentlemen ride:
Trot trot trot
This is the way the children ride:
BOOM BOOM BOOM

Bounce the baby on your knee or foot. When the ladies ride, bounce very softly, for the gentlemen, bounce a little more, and then bounce very vigorously when the children ride!

Grandpa and Me: A Lift-the-Flap Book (Lift-The-Flap Book (Little Simon))Patty cake, patty cake
Baker’s man
Bake me a cake as fast as you can!
Roll it, and pat it
And mark it with a B
And throw it in the oven for baby and me!

Clap baby’s hands for the first three lines. When rolling the cake, roll your hands, and then pat your knees when patting the cake. Draw a B on baby’s hand when marking the cake and mime throwing it in the oven at the end.

Closing Song:

(to the tune of Shortnin’ Bread)

Every little cell in my body is happy
Every little cell in my body is well
Every little cell in my body is happy
Every little cell in my body is well
I’m so glad every little cell
In my body is happy and well
I’m so glad every little cell
In my body is happy and well
Every little cell in my body is happy
Every little cell in my body is well
