A delightful retelling of an old fable with good variety from verse to verse, thanks to the accompaniment as well as the addition of body percussion, tambourine and alto glockenspiel. A wonderful way to teach how to sing 6/8 in a flowing manner. Dynamics and, of course, diction are also a crucial part of the tale.
