    • I found this one not long ago. I thought it was great, with simple identification movements.
  • Board Book – Ears, Nose, Eyes… Surprise!  by Sarah Jones
    • To go along with the song, this is a book about the senses. I pass this out to encourage one-on-one reading with our babies.

    • This is always a fun one and can be verrry ticklish!

Fingers like to wiggle waggle, wiggle waggle, wiggle waggle.
