Opening & Closing Songs

Itsy Bitsy Story Time

We begin and each Story Time with the same songs…

Babies love repetition and toddlers love routine!

The More We Read Together – Tune “The More Get Together”

The more we read together, together, together,
The more we read together at the library,
Where your books are my books and my books are your books,
The more we read together the happier we’ll be!

The Library Doors – Tune “The Wheels on the Bus”

The Library doors go open and shut, (arms open and shut with a clap)
Open and shut, open and shut,
The Library doors go open and shut,
All through the day!

The Librarian says come on in, (waving motion)
Come on in, come on in!
The Librarian says come on in,
All through the day.

We go to the shelves and look for our books, (hands above eyes, looking around)
Look for our books, look for our books.
We go to the shelves and look for our books,
All through the day.

We open up our books and read, read, read, (make hands into a book and move side to side)
Read, read, read, read, read, read.
We open up our books and read, read, read,
All through the day.

We check the books out and in, (one hand hold old fashioned ink stamper, move to other palm in “in”)
Out and in, out and in.
We check the books out and in,
All through the day.

Our time is up but we’ll see you next week, (wave goodbye)
See you next week, see you next week.
Our time is up but we’ll see you next week,
At the Library!
