Little Bunny Foo Foo (Told and Sung by The Good Fairy)
Traditional Words and Tune
Additional Words by Paul Brett Johnson
Illustrated by Paul Brett Johnson
(This song is very funny…like funny wierd kinda funny…but the kids LOVE it!  The book’s illustrations are terrific and comical and it gets frequent specific requests.  It’s a little weird, though, because the kids never “get” the ending.  Even second graders “Hare today and Goon tomorrow” goes right over their heads.  The book/song excitement has always has an anticlimactic “crickets chirping” kind of ending.  Yet the kids want to hear it every time.  I don’t understand it, but I’ll keep givin’ it a try!)
