Happy holidays! This week in Book Babies we did Christmas-themed books and activities.

Join us live Wednesdays at 9:45 AM  – Online on Facebook

Ages 2-5

Welcome Songs

Here We Are Together

Here we are together, together, together! Oh, here we are together in our library. There’s (sing names)… Here we are together in our library!

Hello Everybody

Hello everybody let’s clap our hands*, clap our hands, clap our hands. Hello everybody let’s clap our hands today! *pat our head, stretch up high, wiggle our fingers, tickle our knees, kick our feet, bounce up high!

S, T, R, W, P

(Sing while pointing to each finger on your child’s hand.) Sing, talk, read, write, play! Sing, talk, read write, play! Sing, talk, read, write, play! Sing, talk, read, write, play each day!

Sing, Talk, Read, Write, Play

Tip

Gift wrap and presents can be an excellent opportunity for sensory exploration & fine motor skill development. Your child will love listening to the “crinkle” of the paper as they unwrap a gift. Try using only a small amount of tape to secure the gift so your child can easily grab the paper and rip it open. This will help them develop their fine motor skills so they can hold a pencil for writing.

Activity

Wrap a stack of your child’s favorite books or library books in wrapping paper. Leave part of the book showing so they can see just a bit of the cover. Then have fun as they unwrap a book a day right up to Christmas. You can also save the wrapping paper in a box for them to play with, also.

Books Presented

Bear Stays Up for Christmas by Karma Wilson

Bear is awakened by his friends the day before Christmas, and he tries to stay up all night to celebrate Christmas with them.

Where is Baby's Christmas Present by Karen Katz

Baby searches for his Christmas present in the closet, under wrapping paper, and underneath the Christmas tree. A Lift-The-Flap book.

I Love Christmas by Anna Walker

Ollie loves Christmas. What else does he love?

Songs, Rhymes, and Fingerplays

Bouncing in Santa’s Sleigh

Bouncing up and down in Santa’s sleigh
Bouncing up and down in Santa’s sleigh

Bouncing up and down…

Llama Llama Jingle Bells by Anna Dewdney

In Llama Llama Jingle Bells, little llama and his friends give gifts, sing songs, and decorate cookies. It’s a very merry holiday indeed!

Fa La La by Leslie Patricelli

It’s almost Christmas, and baby simply cannot contain the exuberance. There are things to decorate-a tree, a gingerbread house, a doggy! There are very creative presents to make, Santa to see (must be brave), carols to sing, not to mention the big event itself.

I'm Not Santa! by Jonathan Allen

When Baby Hare mistakes Baby Owl for Santa Claus, it takes a visit from St. Nick himself to straighten things out.
