Especially for Babies
Babies adore stories, songs and fingerplays - learning and being loved as they learn on a loved one's lap - or in company with other children!
Rhymes / Fingerplays
A Kiss - a rhyme to kiss your baby
A kiss when I wake in the morning.
A kiss when I go to bed,
A kiss when I burn my fingers,
A kiss when I bump my head.
A kiss when my bath begins,
A kiss when my bath is over,
My mamma (or papa) is as full of kisses
As a field is full of clover.
