Great book and song for preschool aged children. The song/book are silly and really keep the children's interest. A great way to introduce rhyming to young children.

This song has many rhymes about what you might have seen down by the bay. I want to use this in my classroom because I have found that students love the silly nature of the song and it is a great song to use for rhyming practice and listening. I would use this with children up to 1st grade. I would use this as a tool to help my students practice rhyming. We would do the initial rhymes in the book then make up our own to put in the song.

The song by Raffi is now illustrated to help kids visualize the craziest lyrics that helps kids learn rhyming. This book is great for children that are learning or love to rhyme, its so funny and a big hit. Great for kids 2 to 6.
