Some know it as "There's a Hole in the Bottom of the Sea." Loren Long's wife, Tracy, grew up with a midwestern father who used to sing a version in which the sea was recast as a lake (it being the midwest, after all). And boy did he love that song, turning long car trips into a mixture of torture and delight with verse after verse. Call it whatever you want - this classic children's song invites laughter and audience participation; the sillier the lyrics, the better.
A cumulative text featuring repetition and tongue-twisters combine with gorgeous illustrations from New York Times bestselling illustrator Loren Long for a book kids will clamor for at storytime. Endpapers will contain sheet music for the song.
