This podcast is as new as can be. The last song was recorded only last week and the podcast had its final editing on Thursday!
Very timely for Fall, our podcast features sunflowers and a squirrel. The picture shown here was the starting point for the whole podcast. Taken right from our garden we were able to watch the squirrel on the sunflower head, munching on the seeds. This launched the story of squirrel watching the sunflower grow, waiting for the delicious seeds. As you probably can guess, it is not quite as easy as Squirrel expects.
The first song has the little grey squirrel going up, up, up the maple tree, then down, down, down the maple tree. You may notice how the music moves up the scale with the squirrel and down the scale as he ascends and descends the tree. This is one of those songs I love to sing with children as it allows us to get creative and think of different trees for the squirrel to go up and down.
The second song is a very gentle song about flowers and is incredibly easy to sing along with. We begin with a sunflower, then sing snapdragon, primrose, wild orchid and end with an opportunity for the listener to add a couple of flowers of their own choice.
I hope you enjoy this podcast.
