More Singalongs on Sale!

Have you taken advantage of the singalong sale at Barefoot Books yet?


What are you waiting for?  Tomorrow is the last day of the sale - and Thursday is the last day to order for delivery by Christmas!

Last week I told you about a few of the sale singalongs that I have already written posts about I'm going to share a few more of our favorites with you:

Written by Oscar Seaworthy (of course!), illustrated by Debbie Harter, sung by Mark Collins

Isn't this artwork simply gorgeous?

We hit a storm our sails were torn,
the day I went to sea.
I lived on board a pirate ship
and the captain said to me:

Oh we go this way, that way
port side, starboard
over the deep blue sea.

We sang this song the whole day long
The day I went to sea.
Oh, the pirate's life is full of fun,
The pirate's life for me!

This song is so catchy and contagious, I can't help but sing the words myself when I read the book to my daughter!  Portside Pirates is appropriate for kids ages three to seven years; younger kids will love the repetition of the song and the colorful pictures, while older kids will learn all sorts of stuff from the end notes -  about the names for parts of a ship, historical pirates and pirates around the world.   

The hardcover with enhanced CD (includes a video of the story and song) is usually $16.99 but it is now on sale for $12.49.

Illustrated by Sophie Fatus and sung by Fred Penner.

Four children, from Europe, Mali, India, and China, show us how they jump out of bed, brush their teeth, comb their hair, go to school, and more - early in the morning!

 My daughter loves to point out the different ways that kids do things around the world, as represented in these pictures, and I love that she gets to see that there are many possible ways to live.  I hope that she grows up with an appreciation for the similarities and the differences of people around the world, and books like this help me foster that.

Both the hardcover version with CD of Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush and the paperback version with enhanced CD are on sale until tomorrow.  The hardcover is usually $16.99 and is now $12.49, while the paperback is usually $9.99 and is now $7.49.
Go check out all of the singalongs on sale this week, they are all wonderful and amazing!
