0 Day #21: 30 books in 30 days : Sing alongs

As part of the 30 books in 30 days challenge, everyday of the challenge we will post a reading prompt to motivate you to read books.

Day #21 : Reading Prompt : Sing along

March 21 is Children's poetry day. The reading prompt honors it.

Books which can be sung as songs.

Our picks:

1. Over in the meadow:  - Illustrated by Jill McDonald, Sung by Susan Reed. There are many illustrated version of this book. We love this one the best. Mother-baby animals doing all activities like wink,dig, sing, bask, dive, buzz and so much more . Great for action play and a great counting rhyme too. 
Here is the video for you sing along.

2. Personal Penguin - Sandra Boynton : All her books are great picks for this prompt. This one is our personal favourite! The lyrics are amazing. 

But if I could be yours
and you could be mine
our cozy little world would be twice as nice.
The book recommends the version sung by Davy Jones of the Monkees fame.
While you are on that site, check the other Boynton songs too.

3. Oluguti Toluguti - Sandhya Rao, Radhika Menon  by Tulika - Indian rhymes to sing and recite.
