With the Librarians at Nursery Rhyme Time

If you’re like me and have little ones like I do, you might be getting tired of reading the same old bedtime books.  During last night’s rainstorm I found myself thinking, “Boom Boom Boom, Mr. Brown is a Wonder.  Boom Boom Boom, Mr. Brown Makes Thunder.”  That’s a sure sign that it’s time to expand the baby book repertoire!

So this morning, my baby and I had a sit down with two librarians along with a group of moms and babies at the Barrington Area Library.  They host “Nursery Rhyme Time” there on the first and third Tuesdays of every month at 9:30 and 10:15AM.  As a newer mom, I’m never quite sure what these types of baby activites will be like, but this one was great!

Old Mother Hubbard by Jane CabreraThey read us two sweet books, Old Mother Hubbard by Jane Cabrera and Kitten’s First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes and introduced us to some great new children’s music.  Have you ever heard of folk singer, Pete Seeger?  He has some fun folk music for kids that you can check out at the library.  Today, they played us some tunes from his CD, “Birds, Beasts, Bugs and Fishes“.  But the favorite song for Nursery Rhyme Time is a song that’s still stuck in my head.  It’s called “Alabama, Mississippi” from “Jim Gill sings the Sneezing Song and Other Contagious Tunes“.  It’s short, sweet, catchy and had all the kiddos up on their feet.  I’ll definitely be adding these two CDs to the baby playlist on my Ipod!

Nursery Rhyme Time is designed for babies up to 23 months.   To learn more about the program, call the Barrington Area Library at 847-382-1300 or visit their website at BarringtonAreaLibrary.org.
