Sydney the Snowman's Nose (song)

A Chubby Little Snowman
A chubby little snowman
Had a carrot nose
Along came a rabbit
And what do you suppose?
That hungry little bunny,
Looking for his lunch,
ATE the snowman's carrot nose...
Nibble, nibble, CRUNCH!

"Hands Go Up"
(to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star)
Hands go up and hands go down,
I can turn myself around,
I can stand upon one shoe,
I can listen, so can you,
I can sit, I'll show you how,
Storytime is starting now.

Tall as a Tree (action poem)
Tall as a tree
Wide as a house
Thin as a pin
Small as a mouse

The Elephant (action poem)
An elephant goes like this and that.
He's terribly big and terribly fat.
He has no fingers.
He has no toes.
But goodness gracious, what a nose!
