Let’s listen to the Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling
  • Chapter 1, part 1
Make Any Time — Storytime!
  • Let’s start with the Ms. Danielle and the Friendship Song!  the lyrics are below so you can sing along too!
The more we get together
Together, together
The more we get together
The happier we’ll be
‘Cause your friends are my friends
And my friends are your friends
The more we get together
The happier we’ll be
Oh, the more we get together
Together, together
The more we get together
The happier we’ll be
There’s Chris and Tanya
And Jason and Jusitn
The more we get together
The happier we’ll be
The more we get together
