HOW IT WENT:
I really love books like Wake Up, Me! that encourage interaction with the audience. It makes the book go really nicely. Waking Dragons was a newer book, so I thought that might be fun to try out. And I absolutely adore the Classical Baby series of DVDs. So pretty, calming, and engaging.
