I think this is a well laid out collection of story time songs, rhymes and finger plays. I did find that there was a fair amount of repetition, and had trouble making some of the songs fit with the suggested tune. It was a good source of inspiration (ok, so you can sing "Ten Little" using whatever fits your theme). I'm still searching for some songs about "zebras" and some good food- based rhymes and songs, but the firefighter section was strong as was the farm section.
