Track Name: I Like Me
I LIKE ME

Chorus:
I like me,
I like my fingers,
I like my toes,
I like my nose

I like to make people smile,
By saying nice things,
I like to make people laugh,
And I really love to sing,
I like me!

Verse:
I like my pinchable cheeks,
I like my hair both straight and curly,
See through toenails on my feet
I like me!

I like my big and bright eyes
I like my teeny belly button
Even if there’s lint inside
I like me

Pre Chorus:
Singing, dancing, happily
And I don’t care who’s watching me

Chorus:
I like me,
I like my ear lobes,
I like my lips,
I like my hips

I like me,
I have fun all on my own,
If you like you,
You will be happier and never feel alone
I like me

Verse:
I like my colorful skin,
I like my voice awake or tired,
Like my jaw, my teeth my chin
I like me!

I like my smart stretchy brain,
I like my thoughts inside my mind,
The way I know how to be kind
I like me

Pre Chorus:
Singing, dancing, happily
And I don’t care who’s watching me

Chorus:
I like me,
I like my fingers,
I like my toes,
I like my nose

I like to make people smile,
By saying nice things,
I like to make people laugh,
And I really love to sing,
I like me!

Bridge:
I take care of me,
By eating good food I stay healthy,
Brush my teeth morning and night,
Always read under a bright enough light
Take a bath, wash my hair,
Wear clean pairs of underwear,
Touch my toes to exercise,
I love to run and play outside
Cause I’m good to me
Good to me,
Good to me,
I like me

Chorus:
I like me,
I like my fingers,
I like my toes,
I like my nose

I like to make people smile,
By saying nice things,
I like to make people laugh,
And I really love to sing,
I like me!
Track Name: Ask Questions
ASK QUESTIONS

Verse:
Hey caterpillar, how do you walk?
What makes you fuzzy?
Why can’t you talk?
What do you wanna be when you grow up?
Where will you live?
What do you love?

Pre Chorus:
To find out more, I will explore
Investigate, look close and wait

Chorus:
Ask questions,
Ask a lot,
Ask questions,
Every thought

Verse:
Are you friends with the inchworms?
The birds in the trees?
How do you say hi to the bumble bees?
What kind of foods do you like to eat?
Do you lie down when you fall asleep?

Pre Chorus:
Experiment, learn something new
I can be a scientist too

Chorus:
Ask questions,
Ask a lot,
Ask questions,
Every thought

Bridge:
Look with your eyes, smell with your nose,
Hear with your ears, touch with your toes!
Taste with your mouth, always ask first,
Use all five senses to observe!

Chorus:
To find out more, I will explore
Investigate, look closely and wait
Experiment, learn something new
I can be a scientist too
Track Name: Try New Foods
TRY NEW FOODS

Chorus:
Try new foods,
Even if they might look scary,
Even if they’re kinda hairy
Try new foods,
Cause new food is good for you

Verse:
Broccoli looks like teeny weeny trees,
Honey comes from flowers and bees
Mushrooms grow from underground,
Some are white and some are brown

Tuna smells strong and fishy,
Brussel sprouts can be delish-y
Onions make my mommy cry,
Cottage cheese looks like clouds in the sky

Chorus:
Try new foods,
Even if they might look scary,
Even if they’re kinda hairy
Try new foods,
Cause new food is good for you

Try new foods,
Even if they’re kind of smelly
They still taste good in your belly
Try new foods,
Cause new food is good for you

Verse:
Split pea soup is really green
There’s fava, kidney, lima bean,
Grapefruit makes my face squeeze in,
Pesto can be thick or thin

Celery peanut butter raisins make ants on a log
Try mustard, relish, or ketchup on your hot dog
Dates and prunes help your stomach ache
Berries can be sweeter than a cupcake

Bridge:
Be adventurous, Be cool, put new foods on your plate
And then you’ll be so happy with the meal you ate
Like purple? Try eggplant, or cabbage, or beets,
Figs, plums, raisins, yeah, they’re all pretty sweet
If red’s your thing, watermelons always nice,
Cherries, cranberries, or some cinnamon spice
Yellow? Try peaches or savory summer squash,
Pineapples, cantaloupe, but don’t forget to wash!

Chorus:
Try new foods,
Even if they might look scary,
Even if they’re kinda hairy
Try new foods,
Cause new food is good for you

Try new foods,
Even if they’re kind of smelly
They still taste good in your belly
Try new foods,
Cause new food is good for you
Track Name: Read to Me
READ TO ME

Verse:
Read me a story,
Sing me a lullaby
‘bout a knight on a quest
Or a bird learning how to fly

Verse:
How can I visit a land far away?
Explore outer space at the end of the day?
Learn about animals who eat their prey
How to create a pot made out of clay

Chorus:
Stories keep me company,
In bed or on my balcony
Pictures paint a world to see,

Stories keep me company,
In bed or on my balcony
With books I’ll never be lonely

Verse:
They have books for everything,
Some have music notes to sing,
Make believe or something real,
Go on, discover how you feel

You won’t be lonely if you have a book,
You can explore far away or how to cook
See how fisherman catch fish with a hook
Solve a mystery about a devious crook

Chorus:
Stories keep me company,
In bed or on my balcony
Pictures paint a world to see,

Stories keep me company,
In bed or on my balcony
With books I’ll never be lonely

Bridge:
Read to me,
Mommy, Daddy, read to me,
Sister, brother, read with me,
Teach me, I want to see

Chorus:
Stories keep me company,
In bed or on my balcony
Pictures paint a world to see,

Stories keep me company,
In bed or on my balcony
With books I’ll never be lonely
Track Name: Shelley the Turtle
SHELLEY THE TURTLE

Verse:
Shelley the turtle loves to swim,
Her cousins are the tortoise and the terrapin
She may look small but weighs 1,000 pounds,
Her shell’s dark green and a little bit brown

Tag:
Swim on, Shelley,
Swim, swim, on Shelley,
Swim on Shelley
Swim, swim, on Shelley,

Verse:
Shelly the turtle loves to eat,
Picking up her food with her webbed feet,
Instead of ice cream, she loves jellyfish!
Lately she’s been mistakin’ plastic for her favorite dish

Tag:
Munch on, Shelley,
Munch, munch, on
Shelley, munch on

Verse:
When people pollute, they’re hurting Shelley’s home
Infesting it with garbage makes it hard to roam,
So when Shelley tries to leave the ocean to lay her eggs,
It’s harder for her to move with plastic stuck onto her legs

Refrain:
Shelley’s singing the ocean pollution blues,
Telling kids don’t litter for me, and you

Tag:
Don’t be a litterbug,
Don’t be a litterbug,
Don’t be a litterbug, don’t!

Refrain:
Shelley’s singing the ocean pollution blues,
She’s singing it for her, for me, and you

Verse:
Next time you hold a bottle at the sunny beach,
Think of our friend Shelley and her webbed feet,
Recycle your bottles and do not pollute,
Tell your friends bout Shelley, how she’s oh so cute!

Tag:
Care for Shelley,
Take care of Shelley
Care for Shelley,
Take care of Shelley

Refrain:
So she won’t sing the ocean pollution blues,
She’ll sing sweet songs for me and you

That's how I like to play

We can take turns on the slide,
Or we can hold hands side by side
Push each other on the swings,
Share arts and crafty strings and things

Pre Chorus:
Let's share today

Sharing is caring
And it can feel nice
Be thoughtful and kind
And give with delight

It might make you smile
Except for hair lice
Or pet crocodiles

Verse:
When we play kitchen I can cook, and you can eat,
We can build trains together, or dance and stomp our feet
You can draw first with blue and I’ll start with red,
Then we’ll trade our crayons, and I’ll get blue instead

Pre Chorus:
Let's share today
That's how I like to play

Track Name: Allergies
ALLERGIES

Verse:
I have a peanut allergy,
So peanuts makes me sick,
I stay away from PBJ
There’s other foods to pick

Sometimes I feel left out,
But I never have a doubt
My allergy does not define me
I’m the same me just peanut free

Chorus:
Friends with allergies,
Are just like you and me,
But some foods hurt our tummies
Even if they look so yummy,
It’s tricky being different, but I know I’m special too
Friends with allergies,
Are just like you and me,

Verse:
I always check with a grown up,
To make sure my foods safe,
If they don’t know the answer,
It means I’ll just have to wait

Sometimes it’s hard to say no to a snack,
But I need to to be safe and turn my back
If I can’t eat your snack don’t feel bad,
There are so many more reasons to be glad

Chorus:
Friends with allergies,
Are just like you and me,
But some foods hurt our tummies
Even if they look so yummy,
It’s tricky being different, but I know I’m special too
Friends with allergies,
Are just like you and me,

BRIDGE:
We all have challenges,
That we need to face
But friends who try to understand
Comfort us and keep us safe

Verse:
We all have things that are easy,
And things that can be more tricky,
But we’re all special that I know
Inside and out from head to toe

Chorus:
Friends with allergies,
Are just like you and me,
But some foods hurt our tummies
Even if they look so yummy,
It’s tricky being different, but I know I’m special too
Friends with allergies,
Are just like you and me,
Track Name: Bad Dreams
BAD DREAMS

Chorus:
We all have bad dreams,
But know they’re not real,
Scary or sad,
We can control the way we feel

Verse:
To make bad dreams, go away,
Use your handy monster spray
Think happy thoughts,
Connect the dots
Close your eyes,
Imagine a surprise

Chorus:
We all have bad dreams,
But know they’re not real,
Scary or sad,
We can control the way we feel

We all have bad dreams,
But dreams are all they are
Sing silly songs,
Imagine sheep to count or stars

Verse:
We can fall back asleep on our own,
Dreaming of an ice cream cone!
Chocolate chip, vanilla bean!
PBJ, rocky road, orange cream!

Bridge:
Count sheep, think sleep,
Meditate, count to 8,
Breathe deeply, sing with me,
A, B, C, D, E, F, G
Close your eyes so heavily/happily

Chorus:
We all have bad dreams,,
But know they aren’t real,
Scary or sad,
We can control the way we feel

We all have bad dreams,
But dreams are all they are
Sing silly songs,
Imagine sheep to count or stars
Track Name: Manage Your Feelings
MANAGE YOUR FEELINGS

Verse:
If you start to feel so mad --
Think of silly things
Like a monkey dressed in patterned plaid
Hippos in skating rinks
Pink giraffes with little necks,
A barbie doll dressed like t-rex

Chorus:
Manage your feelings
Take a big deep breathe
Count with me, 1 2 3

I’ll use my words,
say how I feel,
Stay calm, think first,
Take time to heal

Verse:
Instead of being mad, step back, relax,
Imagine goofy scenes:
Whales slipping on bananas peels
A pack of walking eels

Bridge:
Breathe in, breathe out, sing A, B, C’s
Breathe in, breathe out, just talk to me
Count 1, 2, 3, until you're ready,


Chorus:
Manage your feelings
Take a big deep breathe
Count with me, 1 2 3

I’ll use my words,
say how I feel,
Stay calm, think first,
Take time to heal
Track Name: Go Out and Play
GO OUT AND PLAY

Verse:
Look outside,
Breezy trees are calling,
Blue birds sing,
Flap their wings,

Stroll around
Take in the sounds
Play in the sand,
Skip holding hands

Chorus:
It’s a sunny sunny day,
Go out and play,
Skip and run
Go have some fun

It’s a sunny sunny day,
For slides and games,
It’s time to play
Go out today

Verse:
Swimming pool,
It looks so cool,
Hula hoop
Bike a figure 8 loop

Let’s have a catch
Roll in the grass,
Chase after geese,
Draw a chalk masterpiece

Chorus:
It’s a sunny sunny day,
Go out and play,
Skip and run
Go have some fun

It’s a sunny sunny day,
For slides and games,
It’s time to play
Go out today

Bridge:
Parks, pools, sandboxes,
Backyards with big yellow slides
You don’t need to use your indoor voices
When you’re playing outside,

Chorus:
It’s a sunny sunny day,
Go out and play,
Skip and run
Go have some fun

It’s a sunny sunny day,
For slides and games,
It’s time to play
Go out today
