Why Monkeys Live in Trees -- An African Folktale

Eddie and his 2nd grade class at Mountain View Elementary School performed a wonderful program called Why Monkeys Live in Trees -- An African Folktale. It was really very well done. I was impressed with how well the kids sang and played their drums.

Below are two versions of the same movie. The first is the full length program: the complete story from beginning to end, lasting about 30 minutes. Eddie doesn't have a starring role in the story, but rather, is in the supporting choral cast.

The second movie is the shortened movie just showing the highlights with Eddie performing in them. It's about 7 minutes long.

Mrs. Wessel and all the teachers at Mountain View did an amazing job with the musical performances, choreographing and putting this all together. The kids had so much fun!! Well done.
