A Family Fingerplay

This is a family    hold up one hand, fingers spread
Let’s count them and see,
How many there are,
And who they can be    count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

This is the mother    touch pointer finger
Who loves everyone
And this is the father   touch big finger
Who is lots of fun.

This is my sister    touch ring finger
She helps and she plays,
And this is the baby    touch little finger
He’s growing each day.

But who is this one?    touch thumb
He’s out there alone,
Why it’s Jackie, the dog,
And he’s chewing a bone.   wiggle thumb.
