The Wee Little Scare Sing-Along Counting/Picture Book is a resource developed for the elementary music classroom, although it may be enjoyed at home as a counting book for young children. The piano/guitar sheet music (available as a free printable preview) can even be played as you read the book to your children.
Note from Andy
Watching kids jumping rope on the playground one day, I decided to write a jump rope chant/song for a music classroom lesson. Kids would reinforce steady beat in yet another way - jumping rope, and the life of the lesson might even be extended as students enjoyed the song on the playground during recess. We learned the song, learned the Orff instrument parts, and started jumping. In the final second grade jump-off the winning student jumped 200 times!
The accompanying music lesson plan and Orff arrangement are available at the links below:

An elephant said to a mouse one day,
"You won't frighten me with anything you say."
The mouse turned to him and all he said was "Squeak,"
And he ran up the tree to the tippy toppy peak.
How many years did he stay there?
How many years for that wee little scare?
Ten years did he stay there.
Ten years for that wee little scare.
