Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Fingerplay: Here is My Book/I Love Books
Here is my book,
(hold hands together as if a book, then open)
I open it wide,
To see all the pictures,
that are inside.

I love books, and they love me,
I get them free at the library.
Read them once, read them twice,
Library books are oh, so nice!

Song: ABCs & ZYXs
A, B, C, D, E, F, G,
H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P,
Q, R, S,
T, U, V,
W, X,
Y and Z
Now I know my ABCs,
Next time sing them backwards with me!
Z, Y, X, W, V, U, T,
S, R, Q, P, O, N, M, L, K,
J, I, H,
G, F, E,
D, C,
B and A
Now I’ve said my zyxs
Bet that’s not what you expected!

Song: Read a Book
(Tune: Row, row, row your boat)
Read, read, read a book
Travel anywhere,
Worldwide, you decide
A book will take you there.
Read, read, read a book,
Beginning to the end,
What a way to spend the day,
A book’s a special friend!

The library has many of the books and music we use in our storytimes in the collection, so you can check them out and use them at home. We also get resources from MelCat, our inter-library loan system. For help finding these materials, stop by the Youth Desk.
