Valentine’s Day-Babies

For Valentine’s Day I stay away from the more obvious commercial tie ins as well as the religious aspect. Instead, I focus on love.

Books

I Love You Through and Through by Bernadette by Rossetti-Shustak
Kiss by Jonathan Litton
Love You: A Pop-Up Book by David A. Carter

Bounces, Rhymes & Fingerplays

I Bounce You Here
I bounce you here, I bounce you there
I bounce you, bounce you everywhere
I tickle you here, I tickle you there
I tickle you, tickle you everywhere
I hug you here, I hug you there
I hug you, hug you everywhere

One I Love You
One I love you, two I love you, three I love you so! Bounce baby
Four I love you, five I love you, rock you to and fro! Rock baby side to side
Six I love you, seven I love you, eight you love me too! Bounce baby
Nine I love you, ten I love you, my bouncing buckaroo bounce really quickly!

Tiny Little Babies
Tune: Shortenin’ Bread

Tiny little babies love bouncin’ bouncin’
Tiny little babies love bouncin’, yeah
Tiny little babies love bouncin’, bouncin’
Tiny little babies love bouncin’ so
Bounce to the left, bounce to the right
Now hug that baby nice and tight!

Music

The following are the motions that go along with the words. Point to each body part.
Tony = toes, knees
