Song: 《小兔子乖乖 》🎶

To kick off our Sing September Project

#funplaywithchinese

let me share a song about rabbits that my toddler loves!

Perfect for this mid-autumn season 🌕 as we talk about Jade Rabbit 玉兔 🐰

Taken from 快乐宝宝 手鼓书 Nursery Rhyme Percussion Soundbook

from our webstore 📚

Here are the lyrics:

小兔子乖乖,把门儿开开

快点儿开开,我要进来

就开就开,我就开

妈妈回来了,我就把门开

Little Rabbit, be good, open the door

Quickly open the door, I want to come in

I’ll open, I’ll open, I’ll open it in a while

Mother is back home, so I’ll open the door

-

A longer version of this song would include this stanza in the front, when the wolf knocks and asks the little rabbits to open the door

小兔子乖乖,把门儿开开

快点儿开开,我要进来

不开不开,我不开

妈妈没回来,谁来也不开

Little Rabbit, be good, open the door

Open the door quickly, I want to come in

No, no, I won’t open the door

Mother is not home yet, I won’t open the door for anyone else

Possible extension activities:

- visit and observe real rabbits at the pet shop / friend’s home

- look at photos, books or videos of real rabbits

- make a rabbit craft

Our low prep version is to...

🐇 listen to the song in 快乐宝宝 手鼓书 Nursery Rhyme Percussion Soundbook as many times as she wants

🐇 count the number of rabbits on the page

🐇 jump around like rabbits

🐇 wear our 20 month old's favourite rabbit T shirt

and call it a day!
