The great aaa-ooo! by Jonny Lambert

When the animals hear a loud "aaa-ooo!" sound in the woods at night, they are afraid that it could be a monster making the terrible noise.


YOU MIGHT SEE SOME…” (Tune: Did You Ever See a Lassie?)

     If you’re ever in the forest, the forest, the forest,
     If you’re ever in the forest, you might see some... [deer].
     (Squirrels, mice, bears, whatever other animal you need to add in!)
