This book contains songs about four animals: otter, beaver, turtle and frog. Full piano score, student pages and recordings are included as well as color drawings. Entire book is reproducible. The songs are like mini science lessons set to music. Music is easily playable by any music teacher or intermediate piano student. The otter song contains many general facts about otters. The beaver song contains a few facts about beavers, but is a shorter song, geared more to younger children. The turtle song focuses on the life cycle of the turtle, from hatching out of the egg to laying eggs on the beach. The frog song contains words from several languages used to describe the sounds frogs make and focuses on the three reasons frogs vocalize.
