>> CHRISTIANNE: Hello everyone, my name is Christianne. And this is West End library. Welcome to Baby, Books and Rhymes.

So, let's do the Acknowledgment to Country. The words are here. 

Here is the land, Here is the sky, Here are my friends, And here am I.

So, we have that from First 5 Forever. By singing gentle rhymes, we slow down our speech. Allowing baby to hear each part of a word and become aware of the different sounds.

So, let's start by singing. If you are at home, you can call your name. So, the song is 'What's your name?'  

[Singing] I wonder what your name is, we would like to know 
Your name is... Luke, Hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello 
I wonder what your name is, We would like to know 
My name is... Christianne, Christianne, Hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello .

Another song we have is 'Frere Jacques'. This is a very common song. Okay lets' sing it in French and then in English.  

[Christiane sings Frere Jacques]

[Singing] Frère Jacques, Frère Jacques, Dormez-vous? Dormez-vous? 
Sonnez les matines, Sonnez les matines,
Ding, dang, dong, Ding, dang, dong. 

And this time in English. 

[Singing] Are you sleeping? Are you sleeping? 
Brother John, Brother John 
Morning bells are ringing, Morning bells are ringing  
Ding, dang, dong, Ding, dang, dong 

Now we have a different song about washing your hands, which is very important now. And it is the same tune as 'Frere Jacques'.  

[Singing] Top and bottom, Top and bottom, In between, In between 
Scrub your hands together, Scrub your hands together 
Nice and clean, Nice and clean 

Shall we sing that one again? 

[Singing] Top and bottom, Top and bottomIn Between, In Between 
Scrub your hands together, Scrub your hands together 
Nice and clean, Nice and clean. 

So, the next song will be about a pancake. They call it the 'Pancake song'. So, we hold your baby, where's my baby? My baby is a teddy bear. And it goes like that, very gently.  

[Singing] Pop a little pancake into a pan,
Pop a little pancake into a pan 
Pop a little pancake into a pan,
I'll eat it for my dinner.

The second verse is about a tickle, tickle the baby.  

Sprinkle a little sugar with a sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle  
Sprinkle a little sugar with a sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle  
Sprinkle a little sugar with a sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle  
I'll eat it for my dinner.

Now the next verse is about a cuddle 

Squeeze a little lemon with a, Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze 
Squeeze in the lemon with a, Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze 
Squeeze in the lemon with a, Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze 
I'll eat it for my dinner.

Now very gently.  

Toss a little pancake up in the air,
Toss a little pancake up in the air 
Toss a little pancake up in the air,
I'll eat it for my dinner.

Now is time to eat the little pancake. 

Eat it all up with a yum, yum, yum,
Eat it all up with a yum, yum, yum 
Eat it all up with a yum, yum, yum,
I'll eat it for my dinner.

I hope you enjoyed that song. Another is this one, 'It's so nice to give cuddle'. It's so nice to give cuddle, so if you are with someone else or grandma or grandpa or anyone else, you can sing it like that.  

[Singing] It's so nice to have a cuddle, With someone that you love 
Feels so good to have a snuggle , With someone that you love 
When I'm happy or in trouble, I run fast right on the double 
Just to sit and have a cuddle, With the person that I love. 

And if you are with Mummy, you can sing for Mummy.  

[Singing] It's so nice to have a cuddle, With my Mummy that I love 
Feels so good to have a snuggle, With my Mummy that I love 
When I'm happy or in trouble, I run fast right on the double 
Just to sit and have a cuddle, With my Mummy that I love. 

What about Daddy? 

It's so nice to have a cuddle, With my Daddy that I love 
Feels so good to have a snuggle, With My Daddy that I love 
When I'm happy or in trouble, I run fast right on the double 
Just to sit and have a cuddle, With my Daddy that I love. 

So, one more song is about, the next song will be 'Flying to the Moon'. It's called to Flying to the Moon, it says. 

[Singing] We're flying to the moon, We're flying to the moon 
Oh, what an adventure!  We're flying to the moon 

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 
Blast off!  

Now it's time to come back to earth. 

[Singing] We're flying back to earth, We're flying back to earth 
Oh, what an adventure!  We're flying back to earth 

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 
Blast off! 

So, another song we have is Popcorn. 

[Singing] Popcorn, popcorn, Sizzling in a pan 
Shake it up, shake it up, Bam, bam, bam 
Popcorn, popcorn, Now it's getting hot 
Shake it up, shake it up, Pop, pop, pop 

Okay. Now our last song is 'Let's go riding on an elevator'. 

[Singing] Let's go riding on an elevatorelevator, elevator 
Let's go riding on an elevator 
Come along with me
First floor
Second floor
Third floor
Fourth Floor
Fifth floor  
And down-down-down-down-down  

Shall we do that one, one more time? 

[Singing] Let's go riding on an elevator, elevator, elevator
Let's go riding on an elevator 
Come along with me
First floor
Second floor
Third floor
Fourth Floor
Fifth floor  
And down-down-down-down-down  

I think that’s the end of our session. I think now, we have time to say goodbye. 

[Singing] This is the way we wave goodbye,  wave goodbye, wave goodbye  
This is the way we wave goodbye, So early in the morning  

Goodbye!
