The Night Gardener

Little Bird Takes a Bath
by Marisabina Russo
Tap the Magic Tree by Christie Matheson


Flitter, Flutter by Johnette Downing -second line activity songs
Bluebird by Milkshake – Bottle of Sunshine
Do the Bird by Jack Grunsky


We made foam birds to hang in the trees

Songs & Rhymes


Up, up in the sky, the little birds fly (fingers flying like birds)
Down, down in the nest, the little birds rest. (hands form nest)
With a wing on the left, and a wing on the right (hands on each hip)
Let the little birds rest all night. (head to one side, like tucking under wing)
“shhhhh!! You might wake up the birdies!“ (yelled, of course)
The bright sun comes up,
the dew falls away,
good morning, good morning
the little birds say.

Song: I See Robins
Tune: “Are You Sleeping”

I see robins,
I see bird’s nests,
Butterflies too,
Flowers too.
Everything is growing,
The wind is gently blowing.
Spring is here,
Spring is here.

Hello Spring!

March 20, 2012

Bear Snores On By Karma Wilson
Little White Rabbit By Kevin Henkes
The Odd Egg By Emily Gravett

“See the Sleeping Bunnies” By Kathy Reid-Naiman
“Shake My Sillies Out” from The Singable Songs Collection By Raffi

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays
Fingerplay: During the Spring
During the Spring, it often showers
[Flutter fingers down.]
Or the sun shines for many hours
[Form circle in the air with arms.]
Both are good for the flowers!
[Cup each hand and extend arms like flowers.]

Fingerplay: Ten Little Fingers
I have ten little fingers
And they all belong to me.
I can make them do things,
Would you like to see?
I can shut them up tight.
Or open them wide.
I can put them together,
Or make them all hide.
I can make them jump up high,
Or make them go low.
I can fold them up quietly,
And sit just so!

Movement Rhyme: 10 Little Bunnies
1 little, 2 little, 3 little bunnies,
4 little, 5 little, 6 little bunnies,
7 little, 8 little, 9 little bunnies,
10 little bunnies hopping up and down.

Hop, hop, hop little bunnies.
Hop, hop, hop little bunnies.
Hop, hop, hop little bunnies.
Do a spin and sit right down.

Like what you see?

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.
