Terrific Twos Storytime: Storytime Hits (Fall 2017)

For the first storytime of this session, I thought it would be fun to ease in with a mix of books and songs that are sure-fire hits. It was nice having songs and stories kids felt comfortable participating with even if we were meeting for the first time.


Can’t Wait to Celebrate
(from Jim Gill’s CD “Irrational Anthem and More Salutes to Nonsense”)

ABCs

Open/Shut Them
Open shut them, open shut them
Give a little clap clap clap clap
Open shut them, open shut them
Put them in your lap lap lap
Creep them crawl them, creep them crawl them
Right up to your chinny chin chin
Open wide your little mouth- but do not let them in!

Count to 10 and Back

Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell


Can You Hear the Lions Roaring?
(to the tune of "She'll be Coming 'Round the Mountain")
Can you hear the lions  roaring at the zoo- roar!
Can you hear the lions  roaring at the zoo- roar!
Can you hear the lions roaring, can you hear the lions roaring
Can you hear the lions  roaring at the zoo- roar!
[repeat with snakes hissing and bears growling]

Little Mouse Felt Game

Breathing Ball

Wheels on the Bus by Jane Cabrera


Five Little Monkeys
Five little monkeys swinging in a tree
Teasing Mr. Crocodile- can't catch me!
Along comes Mr. Crocodile, quiet as can be
And snaps that monkey right out of the tree!
[repeat until no monkeys are left]

Slippery Fish
Slippery fish, slippery fish, swimming through the water
Slippery fish, slippery fish, chomp chomp chomp!
Uh oh, he got eaten by a...
Tuna fish, tuna fish, swimming through the water 
Tuna fish, tuna fish, chomp chomp chomp!
Uh oh, he got eaten by an...
Octopus, octopus, swimming through the water
Octopus, octopus, chomp chomp chomp!
Uh oh, he got eaten by a...
Great white shark, great white shark, swimming through the water
Great white shark, great white shark, chomp chomp chomp!
Uh oh, he got eaten by a...
Great big whale, great big whale, swimming through the water
Great big whale, great big whale, chomp chomp BURP!


Bubbles in the Air
There are bubbles in the air, in the air
There are bubbles in the air, in the air
There are bubbles in the air, there are bubbles in the air
There are bubbles in the air, in the air
There are bubbles way up high, way up high
There are bubbles way up high, way up high
There are bubbles way up high, way up high in the sky
There are bubbles way up high, way up high
There are bubbles way down low, way down low
There are bubbles way down low, way down low
There are bubbles way down low, and they tickle on your toes
There are bubbles way down low, way down low

Bubbles

Goodbye Song
(to the tune of She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain)
The goodbye train is leaving see you soon (toot toot)
The goodbye train is leaving see you soon (toot toot)
The goodbye train is leaving, the goodbye train is leaving

The goodbye train is leaving see you soon (toot toot)
