Here┬'s a book and a sing-along compact disc that will inspire high-energy enjoyment among kids at parties, in pre-K and kindergarten, and wherever boys and girls are having fun together. The song they┬'ll hear on the CD┬—and which they┬'ll have fun singing┬—has the same tune as Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush. But the words keep on changing as kids turn the book┬'s pages and meet new animal friends. The words and pictures begin with animals they might find in a garden or on a farm┬—snails and ladybugs, quickly followed by chickens and ducks. Next they meet and sing about crabs and turtles from the seashore, fish from the ocean, monkeys and snakes from the jungle, giraffes and zebras from the grasslands, polar bears from the arctic, and nocturnal birds and bats that fill the night sky. Cheerful color illustrations, catchy words, and bouncy music on the book┬'s accompanying compact disc are packed with fun while they introduce very young children to the diversity of wildlife around the world.
