Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Song: I’m a Little Bunny
Tune: I’m a Little Teapot
I’m a little bunny; watch me hop (Hop around)
Here are my two ears, see how they flop (Hold hands at sides of head and flop them)
Here is my cotton tail; here is my nose (Wiggle hips, then point to nose)
I’m so soft from my head to my toes. (Point to head, then to toes)

Song: Little Worm
(Tune: Itsy Bitsy Spider)
The little tiny wiggly worm (Move index finger)
Went crawling through the ground.
Down came the rain (Wiggle all fingers downward.)
It was muddy all around.

Rain filled the tunnels (Make slow fist)
And out came the little worm. (Push index finger of other hand through fist.)
So the puddles on the ground
Were the only place to squirm. (Move index finger.)

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.
