Thread Name: Lyr Req: animal songs for children
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: animal songs for children
Critter Choir, mentioned above, is by Bill Staines, and has some
great clap-along, hoot along and howl along parts

You will find several threads about Waltzing with Bears,
which is a sort-of take-off on Dr. Seuss' about Uncle Terwilliger

There is also a song called Habitat which educates about the need for
a place to call home.

the chorus goes Habitat, habitat, have to have a habitat...

see also Banana Slug Slug String Band, a group of science teachers
who do a great job of info-tainment.

also there are a few rounds (or whatever you call those songs that repeat and add a verse each time....) the Green Grass Grows all around....and there's a hole in the bottom of the sea...

in such songs there might be a nest with an egg with a speck...etc.

or there might be a bug on teh wing of the bird on the nest on the branch on the tree.....etc.

Raffi sings a lot of kiddie critter songs...and has a book or two
of them i am sure..also there is a series of books called Wee Sing...
