We are now composing a book called “Songs For Five Year Olds”.
Here is our song Number 12. It is called…
"Horchata" (and it is based on our favorite recipe).
____________________________________________________
Horchata is a rice drink
That even kids can make.
If you follow my easy recipe
You won’t make no mistake:
- - - - - - - - - -
Whip in the blender a cup of rice
With five cups of water
The rice is uncooked, and then you chill it
For four hours, or even shorter.
 - - - - - - - - - -
When cold, you run it through a sieve
And pour it in a bowl.
Now you have to add to it
The stuff that make it roll:
- - - - - - - - - -
One glass of milk, half a cup of sugar,
Two spoons of cinnamon spice
A spoonful of vanilla extract,
And a lot of cold ice.
 - - - - - - - - - -
Horchata in my cup
I’m gonna drink you up:
You are both sweet and wholesome -
My dad says I’m so awesome

Today’s reading of our song ‘Tortilla, Oh Tortilla’ in sign language is artwork no. 800!

Remember the song we wrote a couple of months ago? Here it is read by American Sign Language interpreter Koli Cutler

Koli has been signing professionally for over twenty years, across the United States, Europe and Japan. He has done live concerts for Coldplay, Steve Miller, Paul Simon, Jackson Browne, Sheryl Crow, TLC and many others. He has taught Madonna sign language, worked with Robert Downey, Jr., Dustin Hoffman, Bill Gates, Oprah, Marlee Matlin, Michelle Pfeiffer, Warren Beatty, and shared the stage with three US Presidents and Nelson Mandela. Here is his Youtube Channel

This was done after a request on the Adora Art Wish list.

Thank you so much, Koli!
