Your child is learning language from listening to YOU, but he can also benefit from listening to, and trying to mimic, your crazy mooing, bleating, and neighing. Plus, if you sing with the windows open, your neighbors might think you've gone "sustainable" and started a neighborhood artisinal farm!


I bought me a cat,
