Storytime - Music


The Seals on the Bus by Lenny Hort - I love, love. love using this one in storytime because: a.) the tune ("The Wheels on the Bus") is familiar to practically everyone, b.) it's super duper silly, and c.) the entire book just screams for interaction! It's always a hit.
If You're Happy and You Know It! by Jane Cabrera - Jane Cabrera's books are wonderful to use in toddler storytime especially because the pictures are big and bright. This is another song that my toddlers love to do. I did paper clip some of the pages together to shorten the song, which seemed to help keep their attention.


Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes

Head, shoulders, knees, and toes (point to body parts)
Knees and toes
Head, shoulders, knees, and toes
Knees and toes
Eyes and ears and mouth and nose
Head, shoulders, knees, and toes
Knees and toes!

This one is fun to start out with slowly and then go faster and faster!

Milkshake Song

(From the CD "Songs for Wiggleworms")

For this one, I pass out shaky eggs and we shake along to the music. I use this as part of my baby storytime routine and the toddlers love it too!
