May 16, 2015 0 comments

Spring brings two very special holidays--Mother's Day in May and Father's Day in June! This introduces the opportunity to share some awesome books about Moms and Dads, so for this month's Story Time Starter, we are sharing some of our favorites!

Singing with Mom and Dad can be so much fun! Here are some great songs about parents!

How about a few rhymes to recite with Mom and Dad?

Daddy Is Special
Sung to: "Where is Thumbkin?"
Daddy is special, daddy is special,
Yes he is, yes he is,
Daddy is special, daddy is special,
Yes he is, yes he is.
(Replace Daddy with Mommy.)

Good Strong Mother
Good strong mother, how do you do? (Hold up thumb.)
Dear strong daddy, glad to see you; (Hold up next finger.)
Big, tall brother, pleased to see you are here; (Hold up next finger.)
Kind little sister, you need not fear; (Hold up next finger.)
Glad welcome we'll give you, and baby dear too,
Yes, baby dear, how do you do? (Hold up last finger.)

I Love Mommy
Sung to: "Frere Jacques"
I love Mommy, I love Mommy.
Yes I do; yes I do.
And my mommy loves me,
Yes, my mommy loves me,
Loves me too; loves me too.
(Change Mommy to Daddy)

Mom and Dad
You teach me right from wrong.
And when I'm sad you sing to me that special song.
You tell me everything I need to know.
And when I need you, you're always there, all set to go.
So when I'm all blue and sad, I call on you, my mom and dad.
