A Blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara

My current favorite children’s book is From Head to Toe by Eric Carle.

I heard about it at the Music Teacher Convention in February. I bought a copy on a recent trip to Barnes and Noble with our daughter. She bought several books of five hundred pages or more and I bought one children’s book. That’s how it usually goes.

As I read it to my classes last week, I realized what a marvelous book it is! Each page has an animal with a corresponding motion. Many of the motions are the same as the stretches I do.

There were head turns with the penguin.


Head nods with the giraffe

And back arches with the cat.








Now when I run out of time in the morning to do my stretches, I read my favorite book to my classes.

It is a great use of multitasking!
