And our music for tonight:

One elephant/child invites others!

"One elephant went out to play,

Upon a spider's web one day,

He / she had such enormous fun,

That he called for another elephant to come.

Two elephants went out to play... etc

(until there are no more children/elephants, then)

Five elephants went out to play,

Upon a spider's web one day,

They had such enormous fun,

But the web it broke and they all fell down."

(Everyone then falls to the floor).

Being a HUGE Alabama fan, I like the Elephant themed books :)
