And mommy is her name - O

And Mommy is her name-O

This Is The Mother
This is the mother, kind and dear. (Make fist then point to the thumb)
This is the father sitting near. (Show each finger in turn)
This is the brother strong and tall.
This is the sister, who plays with her ball.
This is the baby, the littlest of all.
See my whole family large and small? (Wiggle all fingers)
