>> Wendy: Hello and welcome to Brisbane City Council Libraries. My name is Wendy and I’m from Sunnybank Hills Library. So, a special hello to all our Sunnybank Hills families.

Today I’m going to be doing Toddler Time. I brought with me five of my friends. We’ve been having an imaginary tea party. So, if you would like to, you could get with your family, sit around and just pretend that you are having little sips of tea and little bits of fruit.

So, let me introduce you to my five friends. Over here we have Emma, then we have Chloe then we have Phuong, this is Koki and over here is Tom.

What’s that Emma? Ahh of course we need to do our Acknowledgement to Country. It’s important that we do acknowledge the Traditional Owners of our land and it goes like this.

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

Give yourself a big cuddle. Thank you for reminding me Emma. Oh sorry Tom, have I forgotten something again? That’s right. Everybody continue drinking your cups of tea and pretending eating your fruit.

I’m going to talk to the 'big people' who are with you today. So, the 'big people' come a little bit closer, I’ve got a tip for you today. That tip is go to Brisbane City Council Libraries and if it’s not already one of your bookmarks in your favourites, make it your favourite.

Go to the catalogue and on the left-hand side you’ll see little tabs. Click on the 'First 5 Forever' and you’ll see a list of songs and nursery rhymes that we do during our session. So then you, can do your songs and rhymes at home with your family as well as do it when you come to the library with us.

Thank you for reminding me Tom. I’m being a little bit forgetful today.

Alright, so of course we are going to have to do our 'Welcome' song. So, with our 'Welcome' song, we wave our hands, we can do it different ways if we want. We are going to welcome everybody to the session in one, two, three…

[signing]: Welcome, welcome everyone.
Now we’re here we’ll have some fun.
First we’ll clap our hands just so.
Then we’ll bend and touch our toes.
Welcome, welcome, everyone.
Now we’re here, we’ll have some fun.

Great job guys!

We’re going to do some of my favourite songs during the session and we’re going to read a book.

So, the first rhyme we’re going to do is 'Zoom Zoom'. So, if you don’t know this it’s about zooming to the moon and we’re going to use our counting one, two, three, four, five.

In this song though we go backwards. We go from five, four, three, two, one. So are you ready? One, two, three…

[singing]: Zoom, zoom, zoom, we’re going to the moon.
Zoom, zoom, zoom, we’ll get there very soon.
If you want to take a trip, climb aboard my rocket ship.
Zoom, zoom, zoom, we’re going to the moon.

You’re ready to count in five, in four, in three, two, one… Zoooooom!

Great job! Great counting guys. It can be a little tricky going backwards from five but you guys did a great job.

You know what I’m feeling pretty happy today. Yes, yes, Koki you’re happy too. That’s great. Maybe we can sing 'If you’re Happy and You Know It'. Hmm, yes you agree. I think it’s a great song to sing. Okay all together now one, two, three…

[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.
Stomp, stomp! If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet.
Stomp, stomp! If you’re happy and you know it, then you really ought to show it.
If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet. Stomp, stomp.

Now we’re going to shout 'hurray'. In our big voices, everyone.

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

That’s use of great big voices. Well done everybody.  I’m going to do one of my favourite songs now. It’s the 'Cheeky Monkey' song.

Sorry what’s wrong Tom? Ahh sometimes you get scared by this song. It’s okay. Cheeky monkeys play with the crocodile. They’re best of friends. So, they’re just playing a game.

Yes, the Cheeky Monkeys love playing with Mr Crocodile. So, don’t be scared. Okay. Five Cheeky Monkeys. Are we ready? One, two, three…

[singing]: Five cheeky monkeys swinging in a tree.
Teasing Mr. Crocodile, you can’t catch me!
Along comes Mr. Crocodile as quiet as can be  aaand SNAP!

Four!

[singing]: Four cheeky monkeys swinging in a tree.
Teasing Mr Crocodile, you can’t catch me!
Along comes Mr. Crocodile ss quiet as can be, aaand SNAP!

Three!

[singing]: Three cheeky monkeys swinging in a tree.
Teasing Mr Crocodile, you can’t catch me!
Along comes Mr. Crocodile ss quiet as can be, aaand SNAP!

That left us with how many did you say?  That’s right Two. Two cheeky monkeys!

[singing]: Two cheeky monkeys swinging in a tree.
Teasing Mr Crocodile, you can’t catch me!
Along comes Mr. Crocodile as quiet as can be, aaand SNAP!

One crocodile, one monkey.

[singing]: One cheeky monkey swinging in a tree.
Teasing Mr Crocodile, you can’t catch me!
Along comes Mr. Crocodile ss quiet as can be, aaand SNAP!

No more monkeys. No more teasing. But those monkeys were hiding behind the tree and they jumped out and said "BAH!" to Mr. Crocodile and Mr. Crocodile laughed. See?

And now it’s time for a story. Today ‘s story is Pete the Cat and Five Little Bunnies. Let’s count those bunnies. One. Two. Three. Four and five. And of course, we have one Pete the cat.

Now the authors of this story are Kimberley and James Dean. So, there the people who have written the story for us to enjoy. So, lets open the book up and start the story.

[reading the book]: One night Pete was bunny-sitting five little bunnies, when all of the sudden… five little bunnies hopping on the bed. One fell off and bumped his head. Pete called the doctor and the doctor said, ‘No more bunnies hopping on the bed!’

[reading the book]: Four little bunnies hopping on the bed. One fell off and bumped her head.

What do you think Pete did? That’s right.

[reading the book]: Pete called the doctor and the doctor said, ‘No more bunnies hopping on the bed!’

So that’s Pete calling the doctor, and there are the two bunnies that have already fallen off the bed.

So that means how many bunnies are left? Three.

[reading the book]: Three little bunnies hopping on the bed. One fell off and bumped his head.

What do you think Pete did? that’s right, Pete called the doctor.

[reading the book]: Pete called the doctor and the doctor said…

… in really loud voice.

[reading the book]: ‘No more bunnies hopping on the bed!’

One, two, three bunnies.

[reading the book]: Two little bunnies hopping on the bed. One fell off and bumped his bed.

Do you think Pete called the doctor again? I think he did.

[reading the book]: Pete called the doctor and the doctor said, ‘No more bunnies hopping on the bed!’

That’s one, two, three, four bunnies now. Let’s see what else. What do you think will happen next?

Oh look…

[reading the book]: One little bunny hopping on the bed. One fell off and bumped her head. Pete called the doctor…

… again and what do you think the doctor said? In REALLY loud voice.

[reading the book]: ‘Put those bunnies straight to bed!’ So, Pete and the five little bunnies hopped right into bed.

Hope you enjoyed that story. That was great listening by the way. Did you guys enjoy the story? We enjoyed the story.

We are going to do some more rhymes. Our first rhyme that we are going to do is 'Peter Rabbit'. And look who I have here, I’ve got little Peter Rabbit. She’s just going to sit here, and we are going to do the song. In one, two, three…

[singing]: Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon her ear.
Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon her ear.
Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon her ear,
so she flipped it and she flopped it and it flew away.

[singing]: Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon her nose.
Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon her nose
Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon her nose
so she flipped it and she flopped it and it flew away.

[singing]: Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon her tummy.
Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon her tummy.
Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon her tummy
so she flipped it and she flopped it and it flew away.

Thank you for joining us Peter. I’ll just put you down next to Koki. Our next song is going to be 'Five Little Ducks'. We all know this song, don’t we?

Five little ducks. Let’s count again shall we. One, two, three, four, five. Five little ducks, are you ready? In one, two, three…

[singing]: Five little ducks went out one day.
Over the hills and far way.
Mamma duck went quack quack quack quack,
but only four little ducks came back.

[singing]: Four little ducks went out one day.
Over the hills and far way.  
Mamma duck went quack quack quack quack,
but only three little ducks came back.

[singing]: Three little ducks went out one day.
Over the hills and far way.  
Mamma duck went quack quack quack,
but only two little ducks came back.

[singing]: Two little ducks went out one day.
Over the hills and far way.
Mamma duck went quack quack quack quack,
only one little baby duck came back.

[singing]: One little duck went out one day.
Over the hills and far way.
Mother duck went quack quack quack quack,
all of the baby ducks came back.

She counted them to check they were all back. One two three four five. Five little ducks. Good job. Great singing everybody.

Welcome back, my friends and I have decided to go on a bus trip. You might like to get your toys and go on a bus trip too. If you don’t have some chairs, you can put them on the ground behind you and you can sing along with us to the wheels on the bus. It goes one, two three…

[singing]: The wheels on the bus goes round and round.
Round and round. Round and round.
The wheels on the bus goes round and round,
all the way to town.

Wipers next.

[singing]: Wipers on the bus goes swish, swish, swish.
Swish, swish, swish. Swish, swish, swish.
The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish,
all the way to town.

Horn next, ready?

[singing]: The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep.
Beep, beep, beep. Beep, beep, beep.
The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep,
all the way to town.

[singing]: The doors on the bus go open and shut.
Open and shut. Open and shut.
The doors on the bus go open and shut,
all the way to town.

But we have arrived at the finish. Thank you for going on that bus trip with us. And thank you to my five friends for joining me today for our Toddler Time session.

So, we are now going to sing our 'Goodbye' song. So, everyone all together, in one two three.

[singing]: Open, shut them. Open, shut them.
Give a little clap.
Open, shut them. Open, shut them.
Lay them in your lap.

[singing]: Creep them, creep them
right up to your chin.  
Open wide your little mouth
but do not let them in.

[singing]: Wave them, wave them,
wave them way up high.
Wave to me, I’ll wave to you.
Let’s all say goodbye.

Goodbye!
