LET THE SHOW BEGIN!
Mister Laurence leaps into action!

BANGING ALL THE POTS AND PANS!
Direct eye contact is crucial when encouraging kids to sing along.

 TWINKLE, TWINKLE, LITTLE STAR
"At night the largest light, is a balloon we call the moon
In daytime twice as bright, the sun all afternoon"

WE WON'T BE AFRAID
Moments of understanding and compassion, an integral part
of Mister Laurence's songwriting style.

 

THE ITSY BITSY SPIDER

Showing the kids just how a spider climbs up the water spout.
"Take your spiders out!  Climb up to the top of the spout!"

 Later in the song, Mister Laurence discovers one inside his guitar...
"Hey little spider!  Get out of there!"


CAMP THEME SONG

Again, Mister Laurence seen here unabashedly "gettin' down"!


THE END
When it's all over, Mister Laurence gives THE KIDS a big hand!"

Where are the fashion police when you need 'em?
