Bedtime at the Swamp Video Montage

When I go to visit elementary schools, the students really love to play rhythm instruments along with the refrain in this book. Because there's a refrain, even reluctant readers, active learners, or very small children can join in by being the "echo." Kids can stomp, clap, and snap to the beat. They become active participants in the story, which can boost reading skills.

Kristyn, this is fabulous! The perfect soundtrack for one of my favorite picture books. Where on earth did you find such a great swamp to go trudging around in?
