Great collection!

Thank you for your comment! I love the activity of adding new titles almost every day. There sure are a lot of songs to sing from illustrated books and I sure do believe that each one makes the world a better place. Best wishes and please keep checking in!

I just loved this page. Thank you so much for taking the time to collate it. I am aware that Music Every Day can be exceptionally good for children, small and tall. Your list has been a wonderful help.

Thank you! I hope you can enjoy all the Illustrated Songs from A-Z.
Wishing you all the best, Emily
