Your favorite song right now is from a book that I read when I was little. We sing it as I’m rocking you to sleep for naps or bedtime. And you often lift up your groggy little head and say “Dance” to hear it again. Or you do the same thing if I’m singing a different song. This is the only song you need right now!

It goes like this:

“The Hippos big hippos will dance in the mud,

The piggies will follow them in.

And down in the hollow

The elephants wallow

In mud that comes up to their chin.

The cats and the bears

The lions and dogs

The rhino and moose hum along

And rabbits, that’s we two

Would gladly agree to

Sing everyone’s dream in a song.”
