>> LINDA: Hi, I’m Linda.

>> MONIQUE: And I’m Monique.

>> TOGETHER: And we’re from the Holland Park Library.

>> MONIQUE: We really miss you and we wish you were here, but since you can’t come to us, we’re going to come to you. We’re just going to sing a few of our favourite songs today. 

>> LINDA: But first, we’re going to do our traditional Acknowledgement to Country. And it goes like this. 

>> TOGETHER: Here is the land, here is the sky, here are my friends and here am I. Now we’re going to do that again because repetition is great for learning. 

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

>> LINDA: Ok we’re going to start with some tickling songs and the first one is 'Round and Round the Garden'. 

>> TOGETHER: Round and round the garden, like a teddy bear, one step, two step, tickle you under there. Round and round the haystack, went the little mouse, one step, two steps, into his little house. Round and round the lighthouse, up the spiral stairs, one step, two steps, right up in the air. 

>> LINDA: It’s important to have your little baby looking at you as you sing these songs. So you can see how much they’re enjoying them and so they can learn from your facial expressions. That's really important. Let’s do the other hand this time. 

>>TOGETHER: Round and round the garden, like a teddy bear, one step, two step, tickle you under there. Round and round the haystack, went the little mouse, one step, two steps, into his little house. Round and round the lighthouse, up the spiral stairs, one step, two steps, right up in the air. 

>> LINDA: Ok, now it’s time for 'This Little Piggy'. 

>> TOGETHER: This little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed home, this little piggy had roast beef and this little piggy had none and this little piggy went, wee, wee, wee, all the way home.  Ok, other foot. This little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed home, this little piggy had roast beef and this little piggy had none and this little piggy went, wee, wee, wee, all the way home.  

>> MONIQUE: Beautiful! Now we’re going to do some lap jogs. So put the baby on your knee and we’re going to do some bouncing. Ok, so 'Humpty Dumpty'. 

>> TOGETHER: Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall, Humpty Dumpty had a big fall, all of the King horses and all of the King’s men, couldn’t put Humpty together again. 

>> LINDA: Ok, let’s do it again. 

>> TOGETHER: Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall, Humpty Dumpty had a big fall, all of the King horses and all of the King’s men, couldn’t put Humpty together again. 

>> MONIQUE: Ok, always remember to support your baby. What’s next?

>> LINDA: Let’s do 'Boing, Boing, Squeak'.

>> TOGETHER: Boing boing squeak, boing boing squeak, a bouncy mouse is in my house and has been there for a week, squeak. Boom, boom, roar, boom, boom roar, I hear a stomping dinosaur, he’s going to break the floor. Let’s do it again.

>> LINDA: That was fun! Ok, so now we’re going to do 'Row, Row, Row your Boat'. 

>> TOGETHER: Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream, merrily, merrily merrily, merrily, life is but a dream. Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream, if you see a crocodile, don’t forget to scream. Argh. Don’t forget our rock, rock, rock, because that’s really good for babies ears. 

Rock, rock, rock your boat, gently to and fro, watch out, give a shout, into the water you go. Let’s do that again.

Rock, rock, rock your boat, gently to and fro, watch out, give a shout, into the water you go. Let’s do that again. 

>> LINDA: Ok, now it’s time for some hand play songs. How about we do, 'Garlumph went the Little Green Frog'. It’s our favourite – yes. 

>> TOGETHER: Garlumph went the little green frog one day, garlumph went the little green frog. Garlumph went the little green frog one day and they all went garlumph, garlumph, garlumph. But we all know frogs go, la di da di dah, lah di dah di dah, lah di da di dah, but we all know frogs do, lad di da di dah, they don’t go garlumph, garlumph, garlumph. 

>> LINDA: One more time. 

>> TOGETHER: Garlumph went the little green frog one day, garlumph went the little green frog. Garlumph went the little green frog one day and they all went garlumph, garlumph, garlumph. But we all know frogs go, la di da di dah, lah di dah di dah, lah di da di dah, but we all know frogs do, lad di da di dah, they don’t go garlumph, garlumph, garlumph. 

>> LINDA: Ok, now it’s time for 'Open Shut Them'. 

>> TOGETHER: Open, shut them, open, shut them, give a little clap, open, shut them, open, shut them, lay them in your lap. Then creep, then creep, then creep, then creep, right up to your cheek, open wide your little mouth, but do not let them in. Shake them, shake them, shake them, shake them, shake them just like this, roll them, roll them, roll them, roll them, blow a little kiss. Wave them, wave them, wave them, wave them, high up in the sky. Wave to me, I’ll wave to you, let’s all say goodbye. 

>> MONIQUE: All that’s left for us to do is to sing our goodbye song. Don’t forget to follow Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates and hopefully we’ll see you back in the library again really soon. 

>> TOGETHER: It’s time to say goodbye, it’s time to say goodbye, we’ll see you all again next time, it’s time to say goodbye. 

It’s time to say goodbye, it’s time to say goodbye, we’ll see you all again next time, it’s time to say goodbye.

Goodbye everyone.
