PUFF AND THE ASTRONOMER: DON’T LOSE THE MAGIC
http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2014/04/23/puff-and-the-astronomer-dont-lose-the-magic/

**********************

I was looking around at friends’ news on Facebook last week to find that pal Molly posted a picture that her son made:

finn keep your imagination forever 2014 12 18
KEEP YOUR IMAGINATION FOREVER!
Art by Finn

It is perfect.  The message, the colors, the philosophy.

And it is good advice!

The art (and its idea) nutshells the wonderful messages in two favorite songs:

*
when i heard the learn'd astonomer loren long
When I Heard the Learn’d Astronomer
Words by Walt Whitman
Music by Various Artists
Pictures by Loren Long

*

Puff the Magic Dragon
Words and Music by Peter Yarrow and Lenny Lipton
Illustrated by Eric Puybaret

**********************

Let’s do what Finn says, Keep Your Imagination Forever (and, of course, keep singing)!

GALLERY OF KID ART FOR SBWE
http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/praise-portraits-from-friends-of-sbwe/

I was given the honor of a request to select a list of my favorite Illustrated Songs published in 2014.  I’m always on the hunt for Illustrated Songs old and new, but putting this list together provided a wonderful opportunity to look and look again for Singable Treasures published just this year.  Looking again unearthed a couple of jewels I’d not run across before.  Most of my research and comments about each book in this list will be found in the posts about them.  Just click on the title for a book to arrive at a post I assembled about it.  Each post might include song history, videos, sing along tracks, personal musings and experience with the song, children’s artwork, audio clips and much more.  In a couple cases, I’ve written an additional comment directly below the book information.

The books are listed in alphabetical, not rank, order.  Not all these are in my regular repertoire, but they are all fantastic examples of Illustrated Song.

Honeyky Hanukah

The Hero in You 
Words and Music by Ellis Paul
Illustrated by Angela Padron

*
old lady who swallowed a dreidel
I Know and Old Lady Who Swallowed a Dreidel

Honorable Mentions
These are wonderful editions of wonderful songs.  I’ve created this Honorable Mention category as the titles in it are reissues of previously published titles.  

*
fox went out on a chilly night spier 2014
Fox Went Out on a Chilly Night (An Old Song), 2014 Reissue
Traditional Words and Tune
Illustrated by Peter Spier

This reissue of Peter Spier’s FOX WENT OUT ON A CHILLY NIGHT is a MUST HAVE.  It’s such a great song and this new edition includes newly colorized pages.  In the first edition of the book, only half the pages were in color, the other half were black and white drawings (in Peter Spier’s incredibly detailed style).  In this edition, everything has been newly colored, every page.  It’s beautiful and an improvement on the nearly perfect first edition.

*

Over the Rainbow
Words and Music by Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg
Illustrated by Eric Puybaret
Published by Imagine Publishing Inc.
ISBN-13: 978-1623540449 (2014 boardbook edition)

The hardcover, original release of this book was a couple years ago, but I’m delighted to see that 2014 saw the release of the board book edition, so I could put this wonderful song (and gorgeous illustration) on the list.  This book, with its beautiful colors, and lyrics which have touched and inspired generations of dreamers all over, deserves to be poured over and sung again and again.

*
star spangled banner peter spier 2014
Star Spangled Banner, 2014 Reissue
Words by Francis Scott Key
Music by J. Stafford Smith
Illustrated by Peter Spier

This is a reissue of Peter Spier’s incredible illustration for this song.  It is very detailed with restored color. This edition includes all verses from the poem, not just the first verse which Americans know as their National Anthem.  The last few pages include a historical account, giving context for the song.

**********************
Published in the last half of 2013, these books are also marvelous and deserve a spot on a favorites list.

*

I’ve been working to create song sheets for each of the songs that use the most familiar twinkly tune and assembled links to each on in a single post to serve like a catalog:
MANY SONGS, ONE TWINKLY TUNE
Twinkle, ABC, Baa are only 3 of the many songs that use the same familiar tune

This song sheet for the ZYXs has a lot going for it, embodying much history and information.  It’s fun to explore something seemingly simple which opens many doors!

HALLOWEEN

A list of spooky, fun, funny and evocative songs for our favorite October Holiday
http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2010/10/30/halloween-singable-picture-books-ooooooooeeeeeeeee/

I’ve been working to create song sheets for each of the songs that use the most familiar twinkly tune and assembled links to each on in a single post to serve like a catalog:
MANY SONGS, ONE TWINKLY TUNE
Twinkle, ABC, Baa are only 3 of the many songs that use the same familiar tune
http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2009/12/17/abc-twinkle-star-baa-blacksheep-singable-books-and-all-the-fix-ins-and-a-youre-adorable-too/

Using the same straight forward chords for TWINKLE LITTLE BAT didn’t seem quite right.  It’s a little creepy this song, since it is sung at the slightly creepy and off kilter Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.  I decided to change a few of the chords put it off center a little, like the Leaning Tower of Pisa, it’s fun to sing for being slightly uncomfortable.
