Wee Read - It's Winter!

No Two Alike by Keith Baker

That's Not My Snowman by Fiona Watt

Touchy-feely books are a way to engage the baby through tactile means. I always walk around with the book, giving each baby a change to touch it.

I am Small by Emma Dodd

Puppy Love by Patti Jennings
This was our Read Together book.

Special Songs
Boots, Jacket, Scarf, and Hat

Sung to: “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes”

Boots, jacket, scarf, and hat,

Scarf and hat.

Boots, jacket, scarf, and hat,

Scarf and hat.

In wintertime we dress like that.

Boots, jacket, scarf, and hat,

Scarf and hat.

Snowflakes, Snowflakes

Snowflakes, snowflakes,

Dance around (wiggle fingers)

Touch the ground (touch floor)

Snowflakes, snowflakes,

In the air (flutter fingers upward)

Snowflakes, snowflakes,

Everywhere (flutter fingers outward)

The Winter Pokey
Sung to: "The Hokey Pokey"

You put your mittens in,
you take your mittens out,
you put your mittens in
and you shake it all about.

You do the winter pokey
and you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about.

Additional verses:
You put your boots in . . .
You put your hat in . . .
You put your snowsuit in . . .

Four Little Snowmen

Four little snowmen riding on a sled
One fell off and bumped his head
Frosty called the doctor and the doctor said,
“No more snowmen riding on that sled!”
(Continue in this fashion until you get to zero)
