Baby Bloomers- Surprise program

We officially ended Spring Storytime at the beginning of May but my Baby Bloomers group pleaded for one more storytime and it is hard to say no to cute, smiling babies.  So we had one more get together and are planning a few Summer time storytimes- Yay! Last week was a impromptu program that worked beautifully.  We read


Because by Richard Torrey- very short sentences or simply a word describing all sort of mischief these kids one day will get into just "because".
One Two That's My Shoe! by Alison Murray- I was actually looking for a different book by this author when I came across this title. Perfect for babies with big pictures and easy flowing rhymes.
Fiesta Babies by Carmen Tafolla- beautiful illustrations by Amy Cordova. 

Here is the rest of the plan

Opening Song-The More We Get Together

We listened to 
Baby Hokey-Pokey from Baby Face
Baby, 1,2,3 from Sing It! Say It!Stamp It! Sway It! 
It's a Small World from Baby Face while we played with the bubbles.
 Mother and Father and Uncle John
Mother and father and uncle John (bounce baby on lap)
Went to town, one by one (tip baby to one side)
Mother fell off
And father fell off (tip baby to other side)
But uncle John went on and on and on! (bounce baby on lap)

Two Little Eyes to Look Around
Two little eyes to look around
Two little ears to hear a sound
One little nose to smell what’s sweet
One little mouth that likes to eat!

Me, Complete
I have ten little fingers and ten little toes
Two little arms and one little nose
One little mouth and two little ears
Two little eyes for smiles and tears
One little head and two little feet
One little chin and that’s me complete!

Movement Rhyme: Up & Down Rhyme
Up, up in the sky like this, (gently lift baby in the air)
Down, down for a great big kiss( slowly bring baby down and kiss)
Up like this (lift up)
Down for a kiss (lower down)
You’re my special baby! (hug and cuddle baby)

Bubble Time
Goodbye song-  We Wave Goodbye Like This
