Elephant Craft – Song – Children’s Book Review

the parade of elephants

A Parade Of Elephants by Kevin Henkes is a precious  book. In the book are elephants! They are marching and teaching one, two, three… and in and out, over and under. Great read for a bedtime book.

SONG

Elephants

By Vicky Manning

 

Raise, trumpet them, raise, trumpet them

Give a big toot.

Raise, trumpet them, raise, trumpet them

Give a big toot.

Raise, stomp them, raise, stomp them

Stomp your big feet.

Raise, stomp them, raise, stomp them

Stomp your big feet.
