Kids love music, it is just a fact. However I love to read and I want to share that love of reading with my children. To do that, we found some books that incorporate both fun songs and great stories. here are a few of my favorites:
ON TOP OF SPAGHETTI BY PAUL BRETT JOHNSON
Sung to the tune of «On Top of Old Smokey», this children’s book follows the adventures of a roving meatball, escaping the clutches of a chef that sprinkled on a little too much pepper.
LITTLE BUNNY FOO FOO: TOLD AND SUNG BY THE GOOD FAIRY BY PAUL BRETT JOHNSON
If bopping field mice on the head sounds like something your child would love to get away with, then this fun book is for them.
DOWN BY THE BAY BY RAFFI
Even I can’t get this song out of my head. When a small child goes down by the bay where the watermelon grows, he finds more than he bargained for.
CHICKA CHICKA BOOM BOOM BY BILL MARTIN JR
Full of bright colors and basic shapes, this is a great book to cover the alphabet with young children.
Get kids up and moving, practice their reading skills, and bond with them over some of your favorite songs.
