For Babies

Baby's Day

Tell Stories Create stories, play make-believe and let your child be a storyteller.


Baby's Day

Don't forget your life is a story too!  Describe what you are doing as you get ready for your day, tell baby where you are going next, and talk about your day as you get ready for bed.  You are so busy, there is a lot to talk about!


Where Is Thumbkin?

Where is Thumbkin?
Here I am! (Pop thumbs out of fist and bend them as if talking)
Here I am!
How are you today sir?
Very well, I thank you
Run away,
Run away! (hide thumbs behind back)
