Sing Along Signs “Loren Long” at Off Square Books Saturday, September 29

Event time is set for 4 pm; Long will sing along to his book There’s a Hole in a Log on the Bottom of the Lake.

Built for giggles and fun read-alouds, this classic children’s song has been adapted by #1 New York Times bestselling illustrator of Love and Otis, Loren Long!

There’s a log on the bottom of the lake
There’s a log on the bottom of the lake
There’s a log?
There’s a log!
There’s a log on the bottom of the lake.

But it turns out there’s a a whole lot more than just a log on the bottom of this lake!

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 include sheet music and lyrics for kids and parents to have their own singalong!
