A big thank you to Mandarin English for the following kind words.
Magic Crayon has very unique and interesting songs. Their ideas can seem a little bit wacky or bizarre at times, but yield profound results. Children just love this style, as its very original and captivating. Their songs and materials are cleverly designed and their website hosts a plethora of materials and ideas, such as lesson plans, games, songs and crafts.
Thank you - Tim Sensei
