Book: I Love Animals by Flora McDonnell
Rhyme: A farmer went trotting (Bounce baby on lap, facing you)
Upon his gray mare
With his daughter behind him
So rosy and fair
Then a duck cried out, “Quack!” (Lift baby up)
And they all tumbled down (Plop baby back into your lap)
Off of the horse
And upside down! (Tip baby gently backwards_)
Rhyme: Two fat sausages in a frying pan
One went pop (lift baby up) and the other went bam!
Flannel: Brown bear, brown bear, what do you see? by Bill Martin, illustrated by Eric Carle
Song: “Baby’s Hokey Pokey” – Georgiana Stewart: Baby Face
Song: (Tune: “Where is Thumbkin?”)
Where is brown bear? Where is brown bear?
Here I am! Here I am!
How are you today, bear?
Very well, I say, bear.
Growl, growl, growl. (with puppets)

Rhyme: You put the oil in the pot and you let it get hot,
You put the popcorn in and you start to grin,
Sizzle, sizzle, sizzle, sizzle, sizzle, sizzle, sizzle, sizzle, POP! (wiggle baby, then lift)
Rhyme: Let’s go riding in an elevator
First floor, second floor, third floor, fourth floor (slowly lift baby)
Down (bring baby back down)
