Someone made a video of (part of) my Baby Goose story time, and now I’m famous! Let the internet dollars start rolling in! Well, you can’t really see me through the sea of infants, but I’m there, holding my stuffed baby-placebo monkey and singing. The songs are “Here We Go Up, Up, Up!” (good activity song for pre-walkers) and “The Grand Old Duke of York.”

Here We Go Up, Up, Up!
To the tune of “Skip to my Lou-bee-lou”
Here we go up, up, up!
Here we go down, down, down
Here we go up, up, up!
And here we go down, down, down!

The Grand Old Duke of York
The grand old Duke of York
He had 10,000 men
He marched them up to the top of the hill
And he marched them down again
And when they were up they were up!
And when they were down they were down
And when they were only half way up,
They were neither up nor down

Very easy to memorize and the babies really dig it. This is also a good visual example of how we present our “story time out in the open.” You can see both the pros and cons of such a practice. Pro: Everyone feels welcome to participate and numbers are great! Con: Everyone feels welcome to participate and numbers are great. These issues (popularity, inclusiveness, overcrowding and quality of story time) will warrant further discussion, but until then – enjoy the video! Many thanks to Renée’s cousin.
