Sweet Dreams, Pout-Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen, illus. by Dan Hanna


“Ten Little Fingers” by Robin Huston & Sharon Swindle, Disney Babies: Playtime
“We’re Tapping” by Kathy Reid-Naiman, Reaching for the Stars

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Criss Cross Applesauce
Criss, cross, applesauce (draw x on child’s back)
Spiders running up your back (walk fingers up back)
Cool breeze (blow gently)
Tight squeeze (hug)
Now you’ve got the shivers! (tickle)

Kissy Game
(Give baby kisses on all of the body parts, remembering to make eye contact.)
Kissy, kissy fingers,
Kissy, kissy toes,
Kissy, kissy baby,
On your kissy, nose.

I love to kiss your fingers.
I love to kiss your toes.
I love to kiss my baby,
On her [or his] kissy, nose!

Jack and Jill
Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after

Old Gray Mare
Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat
(Baby faces parent on lap or knees)
Clip, clop, clippety clop
Clippety, clippety, clop
The old gray mare goes
Up and down
Until it’s time to stop

Play Your Play Your Instrument
Tune: Frere Jacques
Play your instrument, play your instrument
One, two, three, one two three
Can you play a song, can you play a song?
Just like me, just like me
Play your instrument, way up high, now bend down, play down low
