That was wonderful. I can’t believe how engaged the kids were for the entire time, and we have at least 30 student behavioural problems in the school!

It was very good for the children to see the dramatic effect of music with a nice mix of words and drama …loved the live music…narrator had a strong, clear voice…animal costumes were fun!
