Birdsong has a wonderful connection with children! At every visit, I would hear the their excitement, hoping she would play their favorite song. She explains the information in basic and simple terms, which helps the boys and girls grasp the main concept. I must admit, I myself, look forward to Birdsong’s visits! She adds quality and joy to each and every topic.
