The Golden Egg Book
by Margaret Wise Brown

"Once there was a little bunny. He was all alone. One day he found an egg. He could hear something moving inside the egg. What was it?"

Everybunny Dance!
by Elle Sandall
It is a beautiful day, and a field full of bunnies are having a rip-roaring good time dancing the day away. There is clapping and twirling, shaking and whirling.

In this episode we talked about the importance of developing balancing skills through the use of gross motor movement in young children. Gross motor skills are the movement of the large muscles – arms, legs, feet, the whole body. When babies crawl, toddlers climb stairs, and preschoolers hop/jump they are developing their gross motor skills. Balance skills grow with a child’s gross motor skills. Just for fun - help your child to hop like a bunny - as you hop along, too!

Here’s a game you can play with your child that helps with balance, gross motor skills, and can help to quiet them! Its called the Tippy Tiptoe game.  Stand with your child and show them how to tiptoe, then try this rhyme:

Tippy, tippy, tiptoe, here we go,
Tippy, tippy, tiptoe, to and fro.
Tippy, tippy, tiptoe, through the house,
 Tippy, tippy, tiptoe, like a mouse.
 Tippy, tippy, tiptoe, don't make noise,
 Tippy, tippy, tiptoe, girls and boys.
Tippy, tippy, tiptoe, look at me,
Tippy, tippy, tiptoe, quiet as can be.
