Everything is so brand new. What am I to do?”

  1. Love all these songs! What a wealth of fab songs by excellent songwriters. CMN is a treasure trove. Thank you!

    1. Yes! You are so right! We are wealthy with talent here at CMN!

  2. My favourite chant for learning children’s names at the start of the school year is “Up The Ladder, Down The Ladder”. I add some percussion instruments and we all have a blast!
