Hi Blueberry! by Barney Saltzberg
The Birthday Box by Leslie Patricelli
Ten Little CandlesTen little candles on a birthday cake
Puff! Puff! (Blow out those candles!)
Now there are eight.
Eight little birthday candlesticks
Now there are six.
Six little candles and not one more
Now there are four.
Four little candles, white and blue
Now there are two.
Two little candles, we’re almost done
Now there are none.
Down Around the Corner
Down around the corner at the bakery shopWere five little cupcakes with candles on top
Along came someone with a nickel to pay
And they bought a cupcake and they took it away
Down around the corner at the bakery shop
Were four little cupcakes…
Open Shut Them
The More We Get Together
I really like how Mel and Mel's Desk uses A-Hunting We Will Go. I tried that this time and it went really well and I plan on incorporating it at every Baby Storytime. I used the same rhymes Mel used: snake/cake, fish/dish, whale/pail, and cat/hat.
I am so very thankful for the resources that Mel shares with her readers. If you haven't checked out her blog, I HIGHLY recommend it.
