The Illustrated Songs We Sang at Reston Regional Library on 6/15/2017

Posted on: June 26, 2017

With a Fun Song Grab Bag theme, I pack my bags with favorite songs, kids pull any illustrated songs they want from the bags and we sing what the kids pick. I had a wonderful time with my new friends at Reston Library on 6/15/2017.

These are the illustrated songs we sang (listed in random order),
