It includes tips for telling and suggested follow-up activities plus a CD of me telling the stories and rhymes. The delightful musical accompaniment on the CD is by musician Bill Roberts.

Just click the arrow to hear them.

                      Where's the Sun?
What's in there?

                                  Gold and money                   

 Where's my share?

                                  Mousie ran away with it        

Where's the mousie?

                                  In her housie


Where's her housie?

                                  In the wood


Where's the wood?

                                  Fire burned it

Where's the fire?

                                  Water put it out


Where's the water?

                                  Brown bull drank it


Where's the brown bull?

                                  Back o' Burnie's hill


Where's Burnie's hill?

                                  All covered in snow     

Where's the snow?

                                  Sun melted it


Where's the sun?

                                  HIGH, HIGH, UP IN THE SKY

Here's another track from my CD.

First comes an action chant - What to do with a piece of cloth. That's followed by the story of The Naughty Little Mouse.
