This month's sing-a-long book picks are from Mrs. Wynne, our preschool programmer!
On Top of Spaghetti
written and illustrated by Paul Brett Johnson
lyrics by Tom Glazer
A zany story to read and sing with 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds. The music and lyrics are on the last page, and the recipe is on the back of the book!
Cows in the Kitchen
by June Crebbin, illustrated by Katharine McEwen
A great book for ages 2 and up. This book can be sung to the tune of "Skip to My Lou": "Cows in the kitchen, moo, moo, moo/Cows in the kitchen, moo, moo, moo/Cows in the kitchen, moo, moo, moo/That's what we do, Tom Farmer!"
Down by the Station
by Will Hillenbrand
Jump on the school train (like the bus, only more fun) as it takes the baby animals to a fun day at school! This is a great book for ages 2 through Kindergarten. The music and lyrics are on the last page.
Little White Duck
lyrics by Walt Whippo
music by Bernard Zaritzky
illustrated byJoan Paley
Bright, beautiful illustrations bring this 1950's classic alive. The music and lyrics are in the beginning of the book. Great for ages 2 through 7.
Ten Little Fingers
by Annie Kubler
A great interactive book that brings this song to life for babies, toddlers and beyond! The music and lyrics are on the back cover. Also explore the other Annie Kubler books: If You're Happy and You Know It, Heads, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes, etc.
The Farmer in the Dell
illustrated by Alexandra Wallner
Wonderful illustrations and lyrics from the classic game song make this book good to share with babies and beyond. Music and lyrics are on the last page.
