Mama and Papa and Uncle John

My Family
This is mama, kind and dear. point to thumb
This is papa, standing near. point to pointer finger
This is brother, see how tall! point to middle finger
This is sister, not so tall. point to ring finger
This is baby, sweet and small. point to pinky finger
This is the family, one and all! wiggle all fingers

Where is Family
Where is Mommy? Where is Mommy?
Here I am! Here I am!
How are you today, ma’am? Very well I thank you.
Run away, run away!

Family
This is my mother, kind and dear. make a fist and point to your thumb
This is the father sitting near. shown each finger in turn
This is the brother strong and tall.
This is the sister, who plays with her ball.
This is the baby, littlest of all.
See my whole family large and small wiggle all the fingers
