Me and My Animal Friends
Words and Music by Ralph Covert
Illustrated by Laurie Keller

When my kids were littler, Ralph’s World made some of our favorite CDs.  Ralph Covert’s music is just as fun for the parents as it is for kids!  Sometimes I listened to his CDs even when my kids weren’t around!

It’s a real treat to find that he’s created a few Singable Picture Books and “Me and My Animal Friends” is a terrific one!

Here’s a YouTube with Ralph Covert singing his song:

Also listed as “Animal Friends,” this song first appeared on Ralph’s Worlds album “Ralph’s World,”

“Ralph’s World,” (the eponymous album) was a gift from a friend and when my children were little, we listened to it over and over again.  We loved every track on it and bought many of his subsequent records.

Ralph’s World has a super fun website:
