Child’s Play and their Classic Books with Holes Series = a Treasure Trove of Great Songs and Sing-Along Arrangements

American website for Childs-Play, here:

All these books come in a format that includes a sing-along CD.  Most of these CDs include an instrumental as well as vocal so you can sing-along solo.

Ants Go Marching” is a favorite of the children and I love the sing-along that comes with it.

Dry Bones” is a favorite also, though I sing that one with my own musical arrangement.
