This wonderful song by Bill Wellington is great for the new school year – or any time of year! It's a "zipper song" –- you just zip in a new animal for each verse, always ending with "There are Kids in school!", and let your child/ren sing the ABC Song by themselves. Be sure to applaud and cheer when they finish, or sing along supportively if they need help. Have fun with their choices of animals – what can you do for a bunny? Why not hop!
