Book/Song: Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed. The babies were a tiny bit young for this, but when my two-year-old fell while jumping on HIS bed last Tuesday, I just had to sing a verse or so to calm him down. A cornerstone in any child's repertoire.
Book: Maisy's Bedtime by Lucy Cousins. I've heard people complain that Maisy books are a bit dull, but I think she is very zen.
Book: Good Night, Pillow Fight by Sally Cook. I love this book -- there's a lot yelling involved, counting, and silliness in general, plus it's really really short which makes it perfect for babies. Next year, remember to bring a squishy little pillow.
Book: Snuggle Up, Sleepy Ones by Claire Freedman. Animals in the jungle (and savannah) go to sleep. Very sweet plus, of course, you can make the animal noises.
Song: Five Bears in a Bed -- we only did four. They like this even more than they did last month. This is a real keeper. I esp. love the addition of that "whoopsie!" as I push the bear off the cushion, over the edge of the table and on to the floor.
Songs: All our favorites.
