Hope 7 Summer Camp Singers Debut On Sean and Richie Show

The Reading Writing and Rhyming Tour this week made a special "whistle stop".  This was the first of the summer camp appearances, and certainly not the last.  Many of these summer camps that I go to take place in regular classrooms.  Nothing wrong with that, but to actually be outside singing in the Grafton State Park with the Hope 7 kids? Nothing like it!

Hadley Luzerne Kindergarten Kids Are Very Friendly [AUDIO]

Every class that I visit on the Reading Writing and Rhyming Tour is very friendly to me, don't get me wrong.  But sometimes you meet OVER THE TOP friendly kids. Kids that make you laff so hard, you want to do something insane like play the piano with your elbow, nose and head.  (Been there,-now I've done that at Hadley Luzerne Elementary School.)
