The first of three songs in Partap Sharma's wonderful book, Songs For Grandchildren. A brilliant song to teach young children to count using fun, innovative hand actions. Partap's eldest Grandson Zen was a baby when he wrote this song, his other Grandchildren had not yet been born, so this song was written for Zen and has a clever word play with 'Zen' on page 11. His other Grandchildren Isabel and Kai love the song now too! And we hope all children will too!
 
Songs For Grandchildren 
A compilation of 3 songs written by Partap Sharma for his Grandchildren and for all children, everywhere to enjoy. Apart from telling wonderful stories, the songs subtly and very effectively teach children a lot, like how to count, exercises and to use their imagination! All the stories in the book have beautiful illustrations by the talented Dheera Kitchlu.
