>>NOELEEN: Hello everybody, my name is Noeleen and today I am bringing you Toddler Time from Nundah Library.

Firstly, we will start off with our acknowledgement to country.

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

Read, talk sing and play with your child every day. Now Im going to start off with a song.

This is a new song for me so I’m hoping you can help me and I’ve been practicing and repeating it trying to learning the song, and it goes like this…. So we go clap first…

[singing]: Bread and butter, marmalade and jam. Let’s say hello as slow as we can. Hello!
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam. Let’s say hello as fast as we can. Hello!

Bread and butter, marmalade and jam. Let’s say hello as soft as we can. Hello!
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam. Let’s say hello as loud as we can. Hello everybody!

Read to your children every day, and it’s never too early to start reading.

So, I’m going to start off with a book and I have Poops with me today. Say hello, "hello Poops".

>>POOPS: Hello. Hello, everybody.

And my book is called My First Book of Feelings.

[reading the book]: Eeeek! It’s dark and I hear a scary noise. I am feeling… scared.

[reading the book]: Grrrrr! Poops has chews—chewed my favourite toy. I am feeling… angry. Grr.

[reading the book]: Boo—hoo-hoo hoo. I can’t find Poops. Poops is lost. I am feeling… sad.

Oh, there’s Poops!

[reading the book]: Yippee! I found Poops. I am feeling… happy! Yay!

Oh, Poops, so good to have you back.

[reading the book]: I am giving Poops a great big hug. I am feeling… love.

I love you Poops. So good to have you back. Thankyou.

I know another song about feelings. Do you know a song about being happy? 'If you’re happy and you know it'. Are you ready? 1,2,3…

[singing] If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands. If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.

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

Oh, are you feeling a bit sad over there, Poops? Sorry, I forgot to include you in that song. He’s feeling a bit sad now cause I forgot him.

[singing]: If you’re sad and you know it shed a tear [sniffs]. If you’re sad and you know it shed a tear [sniffs].

[singing]: If you’re sad and you know it and you really ought to show it. If you’re sad and you know it shed a tear [sniffs].

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

[singing]: If you’re angry and you know it, then you really ought to show it. If you’re angry and you know it, stomp your feet.

[singing]: If you’re happy and you know it, shout hooray. Hooray!  If you’re happy and you know it, shout hooray. Hooray!  

[singing]: If you’re happy and you know it, then you really ought to show it. If you’re happy and you know it, shout hooray. Hooray!

Yay! Let’s play a little game. It’s called 'Round and round the garden'. It’s a tickling song. Are you ticklish? Are you ticklish? Yeah. Here we go…

Round and round the garden, like a teddy bear. 1 step, 2 step, tickly under there.

Let’s the other side now, let’s do it on my hand. If you’re with somebody else, you might like to tickle them, they might like to do it to you as well.

Round and round the garden, like a teddy bear. We know what’s coming, don’t we? 1 step, 2 step…tickly under there.

Oh, very ticklish, isn’t it?

I’m going to do another song now, with shakers, and we shake and shake and we stop. And we shake up high, and we shake down low. Are you going to stand up and sing this song with me? Here we go.

[singing]: And we shake and shake and shake and we stop. And we shake and shake and shake and we stop. And we shake and shake and shake and we stop. Shake shake shake up to the top.

Oh, very good. Will we do that one more time?

[singing]: And we shake and shake and shake and we stop. And we shake and shake and shake and we stop. And we shake and shake and shake and we stop. Shake shake shake up to the top.

Oh, way up to the top, oh really high, oh big stretch while you’re up there. That feels good, doesn’t it? Big stretch.  Very good.

I have a couple of other friends with me today. I have 2 monkeys, and I have a crocodile.

And I do know a song about 5 cheeky monkeys, and a crocodile, but we’ve got 2 monkeys, so we’ll do the song 2 cheeky monkeys. Do you that song?

Climb that tree high, I like to climb that tree nice and high. Up we go.

[singing]: 2 cheeky monkeys swinging in the tree, teasing Mr Crocodile, you can’t catch me.  Along comes Mr Crocodile…quiet as can be…and…SNAP goes the crocodile!

[gasps] How many have we got left? Now there’s only 1! Oh, Mr Monkey better climb that tree really high and look out for Mr Crocodile. If you see Mr Crocodile coming, you run, really really fast. Alright, let’s go really high. Up we go.

[singing]: 1 cheeky monkey swinging in the tree, teasing Mr Crocodile, you can’t catch me.  Along comes Mr Crocodile…quiet as can be…and…

Quick Mr Monkey run run. Run, run, run, as fast as you can. Oh, where’d that monkey go? Hmm, hmm, he was too fast for me. Oh, goodness me. I’ll just have to go and look in the river for something else to eat. Oh ok.

I do know another song about a crocodile. Snap! Snap! Snap! Oh, here’s our puppet, you can just use your hands if you don’t have one of these at home.

[singing]: Baby crocodile, baby crocodile. Don’t you bite, don’t you bite. I can run away from you, I can run away from you. Out of sight, out of sight.

[singing]: Mummy crocodile, mummy crocodile. Don’t you bite, don’t you bite. I can run away from you, I can run away from you. Out of sight, out of sight.

[singing]: Daddy crocodile, daddy crocodile. Don’t you bite, don’t you bite. I can run away from you, I can run away from you. Out of sight, out of sight.

Can you see me? I don’t think Mr Crocodile can see me. He’s going to run away.

Alright, let’s finish off with our last song, that we learnt at the beginning, our hello song, that we’re going to turn into a goodbye song. Do you remember how it went?

[singing]: Bread and butter, marmalade and jam. Let’s say goodbye as fast as we can. Goodbye!

We don’t want to make it that fast, do we?

[singing]: Bread and butter, marmalade and jam. Let’s say goodbye as slow as we can. Goodbye everybody, goodbye!

We look forward to seeing you again back at the library. Thank you for joining us today. Bye!
