In the Forest: A short and sweet story time for baby or todder

Here is a little story time to share with your outdoors-baby or toddler...

Books:


Who's in the Forest
by Phillis Gershator and illustrated by Jill McDonald...a pretty peek-a-boo book from Barefoot Book
 In My Tree by Sara Gillingham and Lorena Sominovich...One of Chronicle Books new series of peek-a-boo board books.  They're beautifully illustrated with colorful collages and a felt animal finger puppet to thrill the little one.  They have huge visual appeal...everyone seems to love them.  They are short and sweet, and a perfect "cuddle" book.
In My Tree


 Two Bear CubsTwo Bear Cubs by Ann Jonas

Two Bear Cubs

 Finger Play:


(slowly walk fingers up baby's leg)
Slowly, slowly, very slowly crawls a little snail.
Slowly, slowly, very slowly up the forest trail.
(quickly run fingers up baby and around belly)
Quickly, quickly, very quickly flies a little bee.
Quickly, quickly, very quickly looking for his tree.

Finger Play:

Here is the beehive (hold up fist)
But where are all the bees?
They must be hiding.
Let's watch them fly away. 
(Hold up fingers as you count)
One..two..three...four...five..
Buzzzzz!!!!! (fly wiggly fingers around baby)
