Book Babies 2.2

Scott Bahlmann

Our handouts are printed on both sides of a normal sheet of paper, folded in half to form a brochure of sorts. This go-round I’ve used a high-contrast image (adapted from photographs) on our covers. I also have an image by each rhyme, which creates a nice talking point for children too young to read. …and because I’m a very visual person.

We open each program with Baby Hop, from the CD Diaper Gym.


Then we read the first of two books, which alternate depending on what is available. See my Book Babies/Lapsit Titles page for suggestions.


Springtime on the Farm by Geof Johnson

Springtime on the farm,
All the baby animals in the barn.
Hear the baby chicks go
cheep, cheep, cheep.

Repeat while adding: 
cow – moooo
duck – quack, quack, quack
sheep – baaa
pig – oink, oink, oink
horse – neigh!

Grass

Up to the sky!
Down to the grass.
Up to the sky,
Down to the grass.
Turn around, fall down
Boom!


Roll, Roll, Roll Your Hands

tune: row, row, row your boat

Roll, roll, roll your hands, As slowly as can be.
Roll, roll, roll your hands, Do it now with me.
Roll, roll, roll your hands, As fast, as fast can be.
Roll, roll, roll your hands, Do it now with me.

Clap, clap, clap your hands…
Shake, shake, shake your hands…
Stamp, stamp, stamp your feet…


We read our second book here.


I Like to Eat
(We use sign language for this song, 3 foods, and 1 drink.)
tune: Apples and Bananas

I Like to eat, eat, eat, lots of yummy Apples.
I Like to eat, eat, eat, lots of yummy Apples.
I Like to eat, eat, eat, lots of yummy Apples.
I Like to eat, eat, eat, lots of yummy Apples.

(continue with other foods)

Open Shut Them
(follow instruction with hands)

Open shut them, open shut them.
Give a little clap, clap, clap!
Open shut them, open shut them.
Lay them in your lap, lap, lap.
Creep them, creep them, slowly creep them
Right up to your chin, chin chin.
Open wide your little mouth
(quickly) But do not let them in!


Five Little Frogs by Five Little Monkeys

Five Green and speckled frogs,
Sat on a speckled log,
Eating some most delicious bugs Yum, Yum.
One jumped into the pool,
Where it was nice and cool,
Then there were four green speckled frogs
Glub, glub.

(count down remaining frogs)

Then we play Personal Penguin by Sandra Boynton while we blow bubbles from our bubble machine.
