Song: ““Jumping and Counting” – Jim Gill: Jim Gill’s Irrational Anthem

Book: Counting Kisses by Karen Katz

counting kisses

Rhyme: I can hug, hug, hug
I can hop, hop, hop
I can kiss, kiss, kiss
I can stop, stop, stop
I can nod my head for yes,
And I can shake my head no,
And I can sit down very slow.

Song: Love Grows

Love grows one by one, two by two, and four by four

Love grows, round like a circle

And comes back knocking at your front door
