I never knew this was a book until I saw one of my 5th graders with it. I had heard the song on the oldies station years ago and my parents would sing it sometimes to be funny. I haven't found the cd for it yet, but it's really easy to sing along with. It's super cute, great for kids of any age really, and the pictures are hilarious! Good book to use for story time, group time, one-on-one time, or independent reading. Good book to teach kids about history, diseases, and literature because of the references. You'll love it, your kids will love it! And it's super cheap!
