Singalong of the Week

Our Emily loves a good singalong, so it's fortunate for her that she has access to so many right here at home! She goes through phases of loving one in particular before she steamrollers onto the next, so I thought it would be nice to share with you all what she's loving right now.

This week has seen a good few turns of The Magic Train Ride. It's a standard feature of Barefoot Singalongs that they are REALLY CATCHY. My other half just asked me if I'd been having a sneaky dram in the bedroom as I came downstairs singing about monkeys and outer space! You can judge for yourself, and thank me later....

You might notice that all the train stations have numbers - Emily insists that she gets to announce each one which is very sweet, and it's a nice way of practising number recognition without labouring over it. She loves spotting all the little details in the pictures and I often have to pause while she describes what's going on. There's been a good deal of sisterly bonding over it with her big sister as they take the train from room to room, always a welcome sight!
