King of the Jungle
Kids love animals. Kids love to sing. Mix these
together with their fearless love for God and you've got the perfect children's
musical! From best-selling kids' musical creator Celeste Clydesdale comes her
latest, King of the Jungle. By observing the animals, the children
will learn about Noah's trust and obedience, Daniel's faith in God, as well as
other Biblical truths. Steven Curtis Chapman's popular song "King of the
Jungle" and the classic Barry McGuire favorite "Bullfrogs and
Butterflies" are among many of the upbeat, kid-friendly songs that the
children will love to sing and perform.
