Listen to Rose Byrne as she reads The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrice Potter

Sing: Here comes Peter Cottontail  (Tune doesn’t matter, just have fun hipping and hopping around as you sing)                                                                     

Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin’ down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity’, Spring is on its way
Hippity hoppity, Hippity hoppity
Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin’ down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity’, Spring is on its way!                                                                                                                                                          

Action rhyme: Children will enjoy the bunny jumping into the hole again and again!

Here is a bunny with ears so funny (Hold up 2 bent fingers for bunny ears)
And here is her hole in the ground (With other hand make a hold by touching thumb to index finger)
When a noise she hears, she perks up her ears (straighten fingers)
And jumps in her hole in the ground (quickly put bunny ears in hole)

Sing: Here’s a fun counting song  to enjoy with your child. Once again, tune doesn’t matter. Just have fun!
