Subject: Splish Splash - Day 2


I wanted to write you a quick note to tell you an exciting project we developed for the 2010 summer reading program. It's a CD of over 20 songs and skits called, "Splish Splash"! It's so much fun.

My wife is a librarian turned teacher, and I also teach. All of the songs we wrote to be fun, highly-interactive and great to use with preschool and elementary age kids. Every track on the "Splish Splash" CD promotes reading, having fun at the library, and includes lots of wet and wild, splishy-splashy, water-related fun! Just take a look at what's on this incredible new CD...

1. The Hello Song
2. Let's Make A Splash And Read
3. Tooty Ta
4. Zinghop-A-Hula
5. DJ Dewey Decimal's Top 10 Countdown
6. Food Rainbow
7. Wonders Of Water, Wow!
8. Fish Learn To Read (In Their Schools)
9. We Love Reading Time!
10. A High Seas Learning Adventure
11. Minnie The Mermaid
12. The Splish Splash Dance
13. Summertime, Reading Time!
14. Blue (The Water Is Blue)
15. In A Little Hula Heaven
16. Six Little Ducks
17. Storytime
18. Soap And Water (Do You Like To Wash Your Hands?)
19. Ahoy, Readers!
20. Make A Splash And Read (The Mad Lib Game)
21. The Goodbye Song
