I've been using this song all summer long with my elementary-aged camp kids for savasana. They love it and the message is great. In one class, a little boy laid with his eyes closed and softly sang the song to himself -- it was heart-warming.
IF ONLY, by Dove Cameron, can be found on the Descendants soundtrack.
Peace & Play

I've gathered the books, poems and music for you already. The work has all been done. All you need to do is play!
