Friday was my very favorite kind of day…a “Sing Books with Emily” double header (for me).
I went straight from Mrs. Morgan’s class to Ms. Anctil’s class which was filled to the rafters with a huge congregation of fresh kindie faces.
I LOVE IT!!

(This book is a far and away favorite with the Kindergarten set. It comes with a wonderful CD that has Tom Paxton singing on one track with a separate instrumental track, including a clearly played melody line, so you can sing solo…a wonderful edition!)
