>> EMILY: Good morning, I’m Emily from Coopers Plains Library. We really miss having you here to do our Babies Books and Rhyme sessions, so we thought we’d bring Babies Books and Rhymes to you.

Before we get started with the fun, let’s do our Acknowledgement to Country.

Here is the Land, here is the sky, here are my friends and here am I.

Handwashing is really important at the moment so we are going to sing a handwashing song! This one goes to the tune of Frere Jacques. Are we ready?

[singing]: Tops and bottoms, tops and bottoms,
in between, in between.
Scrub them all together, scrub them all together.
Now they’re clean, squeaky clean.

[singing]: Tops and bottoms, tops and bottoms,
in between, in between.
Scrub them all together, scrub them all together.
Now they’re clean, squeaky clean.

Good job everybody! Nice clean hands now! Okay now for the fun. Our first song this morning is 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star'.

We are going to repeat some of the songs in this session as repetition important for children’s development as they learn and flourish from it. So don’t be afraid to repeat songs and rhymes to your child, whether it be once, twice, three times or even ten times!

We’re going to twinkle our little fingers like stars up in the sky. And if we can, we going to try and form a diamond!

[singing]: Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
how I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
how I wonder what you are!

…and again!

[singing]: Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
how I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
how I wonder what you are!

Give yourselves all a clap at home! Our next song involves spiders. You know the spiders! Big ones, small ones, black ones, furry ones. 

For those of you who can, we can do Incy Wincy with our fingertips, and for those who find that a little tricky instead we can run our fingers up our arms or up our bodies instead like spiders. 

[singing]: Incy Wincy spider climbed up the water spout.
Down came the rain and washed poor Incy out.
Out came the sunshine and dried up all the rain.
So Incy Wincy spider climbed up the spout again.

…and again!

[singing]: Incy Wincy spider climbed up the water spout.
Down came the rain and washed poor Incy out.
Out came the sunshine and dried up all the rain.
So Incy Wincy spider climbed up the spout again.

Good job everybody, give yourselves a clap! Our next song involves a frog. A green frog.  We have Mr Galumph here and he’s going to help us sing Galumph and La De Da De Da! Are we ready?

[singing]: Galumph, went the little green frog one day.
Galumph, went the little green frog.
Galumph, went the little green frog one day,
and the frog went Galumph, Galumph, Galumph


[singing]: But we all know frogs go la de da de da, la de da de da, la de da de da.
We all know frogs go la de da de da.
They don’t go Galumph, Galumph, Galumph.

Yay! Ooh our next song involves ducks.  Let’s see, who have we got here?  We’ve got little ducks and we’ve got a big duck! Shall we count our little ducks? One, two, three, four, five and this is mother duck.  We’re going to sing '5 Little Ducks'!

[singing]: Five little ducks went out one day,
over the hill and far away.
Mother Duck said, ‘Quack, quack, quack, quack’
but only four little ducks came back.

One, two, three, four.

[singing]: Four little ducks went out one day,
over the hill and far away.
Mother Duck said, ‘Quack, quack, quack, quack’
but only three little ducks came back.

One, two, three.

[singing]: Three little ducks went out one day,
over the hill and far away.
Mother Duck said, ‘Quack, quack, quack, quack’
but only two little ducks came back.

One, two.

[singing]: Two little ducks went out one day,
over the hill and far away.
Mother Duck said, ‘Quack, quack, quack, quack’
but only one little duck came back.

One.

[singing]: One little duck went out one day,
over the hill and far away.
Mother Duck said, ‘Quack, quack, quack, quack’
but none of the five little ducks came back.

Oh no! I think Mother Duck is sad because her little ducklings haven’t come back…

[singing]: Sad mother duck went out one day,
over the hill and far away.
Mother Duck said, ‘Quack, quack, quack, quack’
And all of five little ducks came back.

Yay! Now, our next song involves us making some animal noises because we’re going to go to a farm. We’re going to visit ld Macdonald’s Farm' and make some animal noises.

[singing]: Old Macdonald had a farm, ee I ee I oo,
and on that farm he had a cow, ee I ee I oo.
With a moo moo here and a moo moo there,
here a moo, there a moo, everywhere a moo moo.
Old Macdonald had a farm, ee I ee I oo.


[singing]: And on that farm he had a horse, ee I ee I oo.
With a neigh neigh here and a neigh neigh there,
Here a neigh, there a neigh, everywhere a neigh neigh.
Old Macdonald had a farm, ee I ee I oo.

[singing]: And on that farm he had a pig, ee I ee I oo.
With an oink oink here and an oink oink there,
here an oink, there an oink, everywhere an oink oink.
Old Macdonald had a farm ee I ee I oo.

[singing]: And on that farm he had a sheep, ee I ee I oo.
With a baa baa here and a baa baa there,
here a baa, there a baa, everywhere a baa baa.
Old Macdonald had a farm, ee I ee I oo.

[singing]: And on that farm he had a cat, ee I ee I oo.
With a meow meow here and a meow meow there,
here a meow, there a meow, everywhere a meow meow.
Old Macdonald had a farm ee I ee I oo.

[singing]: And on that farm he had a dog, ee I ee I oo.
With a woof woof here and a woof woof there,
here a woof, there a woof, everywhere a woof woof.
Old Macdonald had a farm ee I ee I oo.

Yay good job everybody! Our next song, we need to see your ten little fingers! We’ve all got ten little fingers on our hands, let’s count them! One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten!  We’re going to sing 'Ten Little Fingers'!

[singing]: 1 little, 2 little, 3 little fingers, 4 little, 5 little, 6 little fingers, 7 little, 8 little, 9 little fingers, 10 little fingers on my hands.

[singing]: 10 little, 9 little, 8 little fingers, 7 little, 6 little, 5 little fingers, 4 little, 3 little, 2 little fingers, 1 little finger on my hand!

Good job everybody! Are we ready with our tickling fingers? We’re going to sing 'Round and Round The Garden'!

[singing] Round and round the garden, went a teddy bear!
One step, two steps, A tickle everywhere!

Now we’re going to do a horse song! We’re going to do 'Giddy Up Giddy Up Horsey'!

So, let’s get our children and bubs on our knees. We’re going to bounce them up and down as though they’re on a horse!

[singing]: Giddy up, giddy up, giddy up horsey.
Giddy up, giddy up, go go go!
Giddy up, giddy up, giddy up horsey.
Giddy up, giddy up, WHOA!

Alrighty. Good job everybody!

We shall finish off today with 'If You’re Happy And You Know It'! We clap our hands and stomp our feet and shout hurray!

[singing]: If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.
If you’re happy and you know it, then you really ought to show it.
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.

[singing]: If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet.
If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet.

If you’re happy and you know it, then you really ought to show it.
If you’re happy and you know it, wave goodbye. Goodbye!

Thank you all for watching!
