Rhyme: "Apple Tree"
 
Away up high in the apple tree lift baby up high
I saw a little apple smiling at me  
I jiggled and tickled, the trunk of the tree dance baby in the air
And down came the apple bring baby down
For you and me! give baby a hug and a kiss.

Song: "The More We Get Together"
(Sung to the tune of “Did you ever see a lassie”.)
 
The more we get together,  
Together, together,  
The more we get together,  
The happier we’ll be,  
‘Cause your friends are my friends  
And my friends are your friends,  
The more we get together,  
The happier we’ll be.  
   
The more we play together,  
Together, together,  
The more we play together,  
The happier we’ll be,  
‘Cause my toys are your toys  
And your toys are my toys,  
The more we play together,  
The happier we’ll be.  
   
The more we read together,  
Together, together,  
The more we read together,  
The happier we’ll be,  
‘Cause your books are my books  
And my books are your books,  
The more we read together,  
The happier we’ll be.

Rhyme: "Five Pretty Valentines"
 
Five pretty valentines waiting at the store. Hold up five fingers
I bought one and then there were four. Hold up four fingers
Four pretty valentines shaped like a "V" Hold up two fingers like a "V"
I bought one and then there were three. Hold up three fingers
Three pretty Valentines said "I love you"  
I bought one then there were two. Hold up two fingers
Two pretty valentines, waiting for some fun,  
I bought one and then there was just one. Hold one finger
One pretty Valentine sitting on the shelf,  
It was so pretty that I bought it for myself! give yourself a hug!
