THE ZOO is the name of our fourth podcast for August.

I wrote a song called “I’m Riding on a Double Decker Bus” a long time ago, and finally got to use it in this podcast. Sometimes I write songs with a specific podcast in mind, and other times the song just happens and I find a home for it.

In the story, our group of school friends go on a field trip to the zoo and get to ride on a double decker bus going from one exhibit to another. The trouble starts when Henry gets off the bus at the wrong place and finds himself all alone. However the story has a happy ending.

The second song is called “P P Pretty Flamingo.” This is a song where you can add your own words to make up your own verses. You just have to think of an animal and a descriptive word to go with it. For the song I chose pretty flamingo, gentle giraffe, happy hippo, tiny turtle, kind koala and golden eagle. What ideas can you come up with? When you listen to the song in the podcast you will see how it works. I would love to hear what animals you choose for the song.
