The Library Doors by Tony Buzzeo
Tony Buzzeo's The Library Doors is a wonderful introduction to the library set to the familiar tune of "The Wheels on the Bus." If you can't carry a tune, sing along with Harold Martin School's principal, Bill Carozza, and Mrs. Forgiel's first grade class: The Library Doors. (Nancy Alibrandi)

This helps you teach students the borrowing process. Other songs about books and reading as well - more to come
Read It Maybe
Watch this YouTube video parody of the song Call Me Maybe. It was done by Sarah Ada, for the 2012 New York State Reading Association conference. It would be great to use for celebrations of National Children's Book Week or Read Across America, etc. Note: There is an ad first that can be skipped. (Nancy Alibrandi)
