Storytime Week 2: Who's Coming to Visit?

This week's theme is about visiting and having visitors.  It's in preparation for our Take Your Child to the Library Day next Saturday.  This day is planned as a celebration of children at libraries and is designed to encourage visitors, old and new, to visit their library.

This Week's Action Rhymes:

Knock, knock, who's there?
Two little feet that go tap, tap
Knock, knock, who's there?
Two little knees that go slap, slap
Two little hips that go wiggle, wiggle
One little tummy that goes jiggle, jiggle
Two little arms that go flap, flap
Two little hands that go clap, clap
Two little eyes that go blink, blink
One little head that goes think, think
Knock, knock, who's there?
Open the door and see.  
Knock, knock, who's there?
It's every part of me.

Knock on the door
Who's inside?
Knock once more
The door's open wide
Step once, step twice, 
Who do you see?
People who are nice
It's my family

This Week's Art/Craft: A lift-the-flap, who's coming to visit, card.
