Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr., illus. by Eric Carle


“This is the Way We Clean the House” by Bob McGrath & Katherine Smithrim, Songs & Games for Toddlers
“Shake Your Dragon Tail” from Dragon Tales: Dragon Tunes

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Star Light Star Bright
Star light, star bright
First star I see tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might
Have the wish I wish tonight

Jack Be Nimble, Jack Be Quick
Jack be nimble (bounce child on lap)
Jack be quick
Jack jump over the candlestick (lift child up)

Row, Row, Row Your Boat
Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream

Apple Tree
Way up high in an apple tree (hold arms above head, fingers spread)
Two little apples did I see (make fists)
So I shook that tree as hard as I could (wiggle entire body)
Down came the apples (lower arms)
Mmmmmmm, they were good! (rub tummy)

Criss-Cross Applesauce
Criss, cross, applesauce (draw an X on child’s back with fingers)
Spiders running up your back (walk fingers up child’s back)
Cool breeze (blow gently on back of child’s head)
Tight squeeze (give child a big hug)
Now you’ve got the shivers! (tickle child gently all over)

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.
