for Babies and Toddlers
We're off to the shops
Whatever the weather,
And a-side together.
My hat, my coat, my collar, my cane,
A-one, a-two and AWAY down the lane!
Here's another part of Marching Medley ~ three little marching rhymes, which are a boon for any journey from A to B on foot with a little toddler or a small child.
As with Whooptydoo, which we shared last time, there's a bit of fancy footwork to get the hang of, but it's worth it. Step over to our blog to learn the legwork.
We bring together songs and rhymes for interactive play with under-fives. They're hands on, engaging, and active ~ and they're all about shared fun.
This is a place to find playful ways to fuel the energy of any part of a child-minding day ~ changing a baby's nappy, getting shoes on wriggly feet, splatting through mud, stacking a brick tower, making cup cakes, getting jam all over the place and splashing around in the bath. What a day. Time to get them to sleep with a lullaby - or maybe a back-patting croon to help with a baby's colic.
Order the Books+CDs • Stream the Audio Free
All our books come with guidance and ideas for getting the best from the interactive songs and rhymes, whether they're a peekaboo, a fingerplay, a face-toucher, nose-squeaker, a toe-tickler, a knee-rider, pony trotter, action song or dance. They're full of pictures for sharing too.
Our audio is performed by Playsongs People, a band of brilliant musicians: Sandra Kerr, Nancy Kerr, Leon Rosselson, Kevin Graal, Steve Grocott, Janet Russell, Kaye Umansky, Debbie Sanders, Rick Wilson, Giles Leaman and Tom Wright.
All our songs and rhymes are free to stream. Order the books to get the best from them, enjoy the illustrations, and have each collection available (with CD) in a hands on, physical space.
