The last podcast this month is called DOGS and is available for subscribers to download for the next four weeks. It features two songs, one a very old nursery rhyme where you get to put your own name in the song, and a new song I composed called “Domino.” You may already know the first song:
Little Tommy Tinker’s dog, bow wow wow.”
As with many old rhymes there is archaic language to explain and talk about. Jodi puts other names in the song – Henry’s name, hers and mine – and of course you can put your own name in the song if you like.
The story is called “Henry Wants a Puppy” and works very hard to show he is a responsible boy. I don’t want to give away the ending, so you will have to listen to the podcast.
The second song is called “Domino” and includes lots of things that Domino can do, or will learn to do – like run, walk, heel or stay. But each verse ends with:
A yukky slobbery ball, that’s my boy.”
Children love this part, making their faces and voices match the words.
