Dance them on your shoulders, dance them on your head, dance them on your belly, now put them to bed.

Book: I’m the Biggest Thing in the Ocean by Kevin Sherry
Rhyme: Caught a Million Fish
Caught a million fish, what’ll I do? (3x)
I’ll bring them home to show you
Alligator ate some, what’ll I do? (3x)
I’ll bring the rest to show you.
Cat ate some, raccoon ate some, what else could eat some?
Three fish left, what’ll I do? (3x)
I’ll have to tell the tale to you.

Book: Harry Hungry by Steven Salerno
Rhyme: Great Big Cookie
I am a great big cookie, chocolately and round
Filled with lots of chocolate chips, the best that can be found.
I am a great big cookie, take a bite of me.
Tasty, sweet, delicious. I’m oh so yummy.
I was a great big cookie, the very best around.
Now there’s nothing left of me, just crumbs upon the ground.
Rhyme: 3 Cookies
A great big cookie, a medium-sized cookie, a teeny-tiny cookie I see
Let’s count them—1, 2, 3!

Closing Song: Thank You Clap
My hands say thank you with a clap, clap, clap
My feet say thank you with a tap, tap, tap
Clap, clap, clap, tap, tap, tap
And now we say goodbye!
