Twinkle Twinkle / Baa Baa / ABC

This three-in-one of popular songs is one of the most useful tunes to know for storytime.  I’ve added a couple lesser known variations at the bottom, both learned from Tell Me a Story. Flutter Flutter is a favourite of mine, especially if I have a bat fingerpuppet on hand.
