Nine Little Flowers
To the tune of “Ten Little Indians”

One little, two little, three little flowers,
Four little, five little, six little flowers,
Seven little, eight little, nine little flowers,
Peeping through the ground.

Give them rain and lots of sunshine,
Give them rain and lots of sunshine,
Give them rain and lots of sunshine,
So they’ll grow up tall.

As they grow, they’ll bud and bloom,
As they grow, they’ll bud and bloom,
As they grow, they’ll bud and bloom,
In the lovely springtime.

If you’re happy and you know it

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands (clap clap)
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands (clap clap)
If you’re happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands. (clap clap)

(Stomp your feet, Shout Hooray, Read a book)

-When I stretch Up

When I stretch up, I feel so tall.

When I bend down, I feel so small.

Taller, taller, taller, taller.

Smaller, Smaller, Smaller, Smaller,

Into a tiny ball.

-Head, Shoulder, Knees and Toes

Head, shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes.

Head, shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes.

And eyes, and ears, and mouth,
And nose.

Head, shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes.

-Twinkle,Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle little star,
How I wonder what you are.

Touch your ears, pat your nose,
Tickle baby’s little toes.

Little Ducks Song

Sung to: “London Bridge”

Little ducks go quack, quack, quack
Quack, quack, quack,
Quack, quack, quack –
Little ducks go quack quack quack
In the springtime.

-Ducky Tickle (Use a rubber duck or pom-pom to act out the rhyme.)

Quack, quack, quack,

The duck’s on your back.

She climbs to your head,

And jumps to your lap.

Flap, flap, flap,

Down your legs she taps.

She waddles to your toes,

And back to your lap.

Skip, skip, skip,

Our ducky does flips.

She gives you a big kiss,

Right on your lips.

-Twinkle,Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle little star,
How I wonder what you are.

Lapsit Storytime – Ducks – Thursday, April 10, 2014

What a bittersweet day – it’s our final Lapsit Storytime for the year.  Your babies have grown so much since our first storytime in September, and I am so proud of them (and you too, parents/caregivers – you have done a fantastic job supporting early literacy!).

Our books about ducks are:

  I Kissed the Baby! (Mary Murphy) – There’s a new baby in the barnyard!  Stark black and white illustrations will capture the attention of even the youngest baby.

Five Little Ducks (Ivan Bates) – Sweet illustrated version of a classic children’s song.

Jack-A-Dandy (Bounce Rhyme)

Handy Spandy, Jack-A-Dandy
Loves plum cake and sugar candy.
He bought some at the grocer’s shop,
And out he came hop, hop, hop.

Thank you again for attending Lapsit Storytime.  An abbreviated Family Storytime (for all ages) will be offered from April 30 – May 28 – Wednesdays at either 10:00 AM or 6:30 PM.  No registration is required.

Summer Reading Club information will be available soon too.  Plan on visiting the library frequently with your baby this summer  – lots of prizes and fun programs for your whole family!

Time for Twos – Ducks – Friday, April 11, 2014

Congratulations!  As of today, your child is a graduate of the Time for Twos program.  Today is the final session of regular storytime, and I will miss having you all in class!

For more storytime opportunities, consider our drop-in Family Storytime program, which will meet Wednesdays (either 10:00 AM or 6:30 PM) from April 30-May 28.

Our books this week:

  Have You Seen My Duckling (Nancy Tafuri) – Mother duck worries when she is not able to find one of her ducklings.  Tafuri’s trademark detailed illustrations will engage both children and adults.

  Five Little Ducks (Ivan Bates) – Sweetly illustrated version of a classic children’s song.

My Hands (Action Rhyme)

On my head my hands I place.
On my shoulders, on my face.
On my hips, and at my side.
Then behind me they will hide.
I will hold them up so high.
Quickly make my fingers fly.
Hold them out in front of me.
Quickly count them one, two, three!

I hope to see you at Family Storytime, or just when you visit the library (be sure to stop by and say hello!).  Our Summer Reading Club information will be available soon – lots of fun planned for kids of all ages.
