Lee Public Library kicked off its summer FIZZ…BOOM…READ! Summer Program with a visit from singer/songwriter/storyteller Anna Moo. Dressed in a bright pink t-shirt emblazoned with “Deja Moo,” she began with fun variations on the song, You Are My Sunshine (You Are My Oatmeal, You Are My Cookie) and followed up with several of her favorites, including When the Rains Comes Down, a Spanish song she had translated into English, and The Tiny Little Seeds, which she incorporated into the “lawnmower game.”
