Three Talking Toucans
Three talking toucans sitting in a tree
The first one turned & squawked at me!
Three little toucans sitting in a row
The second one said"I flap my wings,watch me go!"
Three little toucans sitting side by side
The third one said "my bright beak, I open wide!"

Three Frolicking Red Eyed Tree Frogs
Three little frogs sitting in a tree
The first one turned & jumped towards me!
Three little little frogs hopping all about
The second one said "at night's when I come out!"
Three little frogs leaping tree to tree
The third one said "hey,wait for me!

The Mighty Morpho Butterflies
Three morpho butterflies gliding through the trees
The first one swooped to take a look at me!
Three morpho butterflies sitting on a leaf
The second one was trying to eat something sweet!
Three morpho butterflies flitting all about
The third one landed on my snout!

Take A Walk In The Rainforest
There are four levels of the rainforest.
Let's take a walk & see.
The Emergent Level of the rainforest is the tops of the tallest trees.
Vultures,Mosquitoes, flying Geckos
Glide on skin from head to toe
Harpy eagles almost four feet tall
Look around 'cause that's not all
There are four levels of the rainforest.
Let's take a walk & see.
If we could bend way back & look up high,we'd see the Canopy.
Fruit Bats,Toucans Parakeets too
And Howler Monkeys,to name a few
It looks like broccoli we would say
From the window of a plane on a sunny day
There are four levels of the rainforest.
Let's take a walk & see.
Look straight up,we will find what's called the Understory.
Bromeliads and orchids are called Epiphytes
They grow without soil at different heights
Butterflies,Tree Frogs,& hummingbirds
Are some of the sounds that can be heard
There is one more level of the rainforest.
We've reached the number four.
The lowest level of the rainforest is simply called the Floor.
Clay and sand & fallen leaves
Mold & fungus, buttressed roots of trees
Insects, Millipedes, crocodile
Anacondas & natives who love to smile.
At the four levels of the rainforest, let's take a walk & see.
There are four levels of the rainforest.
Name them now with me.
Emergent Layer & canopy
Are one & two.
Let's go for three.
The Understory, don't forget number four
The lowest level, the forest Floor.

Little Froggy
(tune: I'm a little teapot)
See the little froggy
Swimming in the pool
The water's great
It's nice and cool
When he gets all cleaned up
Out he'll hop
Squeaky clean
From bottom to top.

See the little froggy
On the lily pad
Trying to catch flies
She's getting sad.
When she catches one,
She'll gobble it up
Back in the water
She'll go kerplop!

Baby Frogs
"Ribbit Ribbit" said mama frog
Sitting on a great big log
"Where are my babies, where can they be?"
Then out of the pond jumped one, two and three.
(Hold up three fingers , one at a time)
She was happy as could be,
But where were the others? She couldn't see.
So, "Ribbit, ribbit," she called again.
Then out they jumped---4,5,6,7,8,9 and 10.
(hold up remaining fingers one at a time)
