The Train Ride

Climb aboard for a rhythmic train ride through the country. There's lots to see and someone very special waiting at the end!

And what does she see? Sheep, cows, horses and much more!

We All Go Travelling By [with CC]

This rhythmic I-spy journey to school through various landscapes is the perfect introduction to colors, modes of transport, and of course, music! The jaunty text, Siobhan Bell's colorful hand-stitched illustrations and the accompanying Music CD by popular singer Fred Penner are sure to get children singing along happily. The I-Spy theme encourages reader/listener interaction, while the cumulative, repetitive text helps build sequencing skills. We All Go Traveling By is ideal for read-aloud and music and movement activities.
