Good Morning!

BPL - FFY, Songs and Rhymes, Good Morning!, baby waking up smiling.

Getting up can be hard sometimes, especially on cold winter mornings! Enjoy the warmth of a cozy bed a little longer by sharing a book with your child. Or get moving with a busy action song. Either way, you’ll start your day together with a smile and some fun, as you get ready to greet the day!
