1 2 3 Count with Me! Pajama Story Time, 2/6/13
Book: Ten Little Fish by Audrey Wood and Bruce Wood
One of the moms in the room is expecting a baby so the ending of this one - where the mother and father fish have their babies - got a big "aww" from her. The kids were not that into it, but they were also still warming up to me. Both girls in attendance will be two this Spring.
Song: Three Little Fish
Book: Hardworking Puppies by Lynn Reiser
This is a longer one, with a lot of references to subtraction, so I was hesitant about using it, but both girls kept getting up to come over and point at the puppies. They were very fond of the illustrations even if I think the text went mostly over their heads.
Song: Counting Dog
I couldn't listen to the tune when I was at the desk, so I just sang these words to the tune of Froggie Went a Courtin'.
Book: Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed by Eileen Christelow
This was a huge hit as I knew it would be. All the adults knew it, and the kids picked up some of the words and sang them with me when we did the song.
Song: Monkeys on the Bed
Book: Ten Little Sleepyheads by Elizabeth Provost, illustrated by Donald Saaf
On every page, instead of finding the sleeping bug, the girls pointed to the ladybug. Interesting that he is the one who caught their attention.
Song: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Song: Moon Moon Moon
I use the same hello and goodbye songs at almost every session. Click here for the tunes and words. For descriptions of each of my story times, click here.
