This past week I was sitting in my office working on a chapter and Jax was playing nearby with the doll house lost in thought. Jax is my 4 1/2 year old son.
While he was playing, he continued to hum and sing songs and ultimately came around to a favorite, the ABC Song. He sang it through a couple of times, and then looked at me and said, “Daddy, when I get big, and big, and bigger, I want to sing the ABC Song.” I told him that he was singing it now and that he was doing a great job.
He replied, “No Daddy, I like the ABC Song and I think other people around the world should sing it. Can we sing it and have other people all around the world sing it?”
At that point I was working on sending materials for Learning Event Two out to the #walkmyworld hashtag and thought…you know what…we might be able to make this happen.
I recorded Jax’s request and his rendition of the ABC Song using Soundcloud. You can review the recording and annotate if you see fit.
Please also find a way to record and share your version of the ABC Song and send it back. We’re both excited to see and hear people singing the ABC Song all around the world.
