Baby Story Time

Introduction to Baby Story Time for those who haven't read it.

Today features some new-to-me rhymes that I learned off the blog  Librarian Lisa's Storytimes.

I love Global Babies. It's a simple and sweet text with large, colorful photos of babies from all over the world. Babies LOVE looking at other babies, so it's always a winner.

Moo Baa La La La is a Sandra Boynton classic with lots of animal noises. We're also lucky enough to have this in lap-book sized board book, which the kids love. Also, one of the story time moms (who knows my love for all things Boynton) showed me the book app for this book and it's really great and a lot of fun.)

To fetch a pail of water

Went to bed with his britches on
One shoe off and one shoe on

Some like it in the pot, 9 days old

Bounces and Action Rhymes:

(to the tune of: “Wheels on the Bus”)

I can make my hands
Go clap, clap, clap,
Clap, clap, clap,
Clap, clap, clap.
I can make my hands
Go clap, clap, clap.
They’re a part of me.

I can make my feet
Go stamp, stamp, stamp…
I can make my legs
Go hop, hop, hop…

Tick tock, tick tock
I’m a little cuckoo clock
Tick tock, tick tock
Now it’s striking one o’clock
Tick tock, tick tock
Cuckoo!

Rock baby back and forth and then lift baby in the air on “cuckoo”. Repeat for two and three o’clock.

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!

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
