**********************

I discovered that the book’s poem is perfectly suited for singing along with the song “Reuben, Reuben” (also sometimes called “Reuben and Rachel”) which you can hear sung quite nicely by the choir in this video:

The intro is a little too long, but you can hear the tune.  Get the tune in your head then sing along with “Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin” to make it extra fun.
