OCEANS AND SEAS
A list of Singable Picture Books that celebrate the Oceans and Seas
http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2014/02/14/songs-of-the-oceans-and-seas/

Just realized I’d not published the songs we sang for the school week of 10/21-10/24, 2014.  On 10/24, poor me got very sick while visiting Baltimore with my friend Cindy.  Ugh!  It’s taken until just the last couple days to feel well again.  I missed two full weeks of Sing Books performances.  It was heartbreaking to cancel them.

It feels GREAT to be back in the saddle again!  And I did try to use the time wisely and got to make a few illustrations for songs I’ve long wanted to share the the children in classrooms, including:

*
The marvelous PAUL RAIMAN of http://www.myrehearsalpianist.com put together a wonderful sing-along for me, using this’s and that’s from a couple arrangements and playing it all in my key.  I’m so excited about it!  What a wonderful song:
hurry it's lovely up here illustrated song 4 sbwe cover only
Hurry!  It’s Lovely Up Here
Words by Alan Jay Lerner
Music by Burton Lane
From the Musical: ON A CLEAR DAY YOU CAN SEE FOREVER

10/21-10/24, 2014, I got to visit the classes of Ms. Morgan (K), Ms. Harris (K), Ms. Risutek (1), Ms. George (1), Ms. Hissong (1), Ms. Everett (K), Ms. Campbell (K), Ms. Sackett (1), Ms. Mason (K)!  In many classes, I was brave and brought along my guitar to Tuckahoe Elementary and  Timber Lane Elementary

Titles here are listed in no particular order.  Maybe we can notice things that we’d not before.  Sooooo many wonderful songs to sing!

MAKE A FRIEND
Words and Music by Robert E. (Buffalo Bob) Smith and Edward G. Kean

You can make a lot of money
Make a cake as sweet as honey
Make a list of things for Santa Claus to send
But no matter how long it may take
The greatest thing you’ll ever make is a friend

You can make your team a winner
You can make a pizza dinner
So delish you wish the meal would never end
But no matter how long it may take
The greatest thing you’ll ever make is a friend

And when things don’t go the way you planned
And your trouble mounts
If you have a friend at hand
That is all that counts

You can make a coc’late sundae
Big enough to last ’til Monday
But remember what’s important in the end:
That no matter how long it may take
The greatest thing you’ll ever make is a friend

And when things don’t go the way you planned
And your trouble mounts
If you have a friend at hand
That is all that counts

You can make a coc’late sundae
Big enough to last ’til Monday
But remember what’s important in the end:
That no matter how long it may take
The greatest thing you’ll ever make is a friend

Hi, friend!
