Songs: The Bear Went Over the Mountain

We encourage you to give your child a wide range of musical experiences: singing songs, listening to all kinds of music, dancing at home, attending local musical performances when possible. One of the best (and easiest!) activities is singing with your child. If you don't feel confident about your own singing voice, remember that the more you sing with your child, the more comfortable you'll feel, and the more you'll both enjoy music together. Here is one song we suggest for singing together.


The bear went over the mountain,

The bear went over the mountain,

The bear went over the mountain,

To see what he could see.

And all that he could see,

And all that he could see,

Was the other side of the mountain,

The other side of the mountain,

The other side of the mountain,

Was all that he could see!
