“Baa Baa Black Sheep” (67 seconds cautiously, 32 seconds confidently)

Otis has a book of Nursery Rhymes. (This one.) He loves it, I think it’s just OK. Some of the poems are slightly different from the versions I grew up with (“washed poor Itsy out” instead of “washed the spider out”) and I’m always torn between singing what sounds right and what’s on the page. I also think the illustrations are a little too precious. But Otis likes it and we sing through the whole book together at bedtime some nights! It took a little coaxing to get him to sing on his own, but here he is singing “Baa Baa Black Sheep.” He’s a little cautious the first time around. But he had it all figured out the second night and sang with great confidence.
