We all love the alphabet song. We sing it slow. We sing it fast. We clap our hands. And we even dance around.
And before long, we’re on our fifth round of “Who Wants to be an Alphabet Singer”.
Really, it’s hard to stop! ‘Cause the song is cool. It’s catchy. And it brings joy every time we sing it.
But friends, we have to move on.
I know. Don’t be sad. We can always come back to it.
