All ready for the big circus parade. Choose what you want to do or be
in the parade. Now we are at the circus grounds. The band marches
around the tent. Choose the instrument you want to play. See the big,
big elephants in the circus. Let us feed the big elephants. Now look at
the pretty high-stepping horses. See if we can step as high as they.
The little baby ponies are coming now. Let us make tiny steps just as
they do. Now the juggler is ready to play. Throw the ball high, way up
