Saxy Storytime

Today’s storytime theme was music, which means I got to read/sing one of my favorite picture books, Thatcher Hurd’s Mama Don’t Allow.


In the book, Miles gets a saxophone and starts up his own Swamp Band. I brought in my brother’s saxophone to show the kids what one looks like close up (no reed, though, so I couldn’t make it squeak and squawk), and we even started up our own Swamp Band by playing shakers and bells to Mama Don’t Allow off of Wiggleworms Love You


I brought my clarinet in too, but luckily we ran of time before I could bust it out.


Remember, swamp bands play in the swamp!
