Sing Books with Emily, the Blog

Archive for the ‘Singable Picture Book Video’ Category

Since there are many to choose from, my favorite IF YOU’RE HAPPY AND YOU KNOW IT Singable Picture Book is published by Barefoot Books, Adapted by Anna McQuinn and Illustrated by Sophie Fatus.

If You’re Happy and You Know It

Traditional Tune
Words Adapted by Anna McQuinn
Illustrated by Sophie Fatus
(This book, published by Barefoot Books, comes with a CD, printed music and pages of interesting facts)
Published by Barefoot Books 

This book comes with a nicely produced and arranged vocal and instrumental track.  My only bugaboo with it is that the interlude between verses is not always consistent.  You’ll need to learn the vocal and where the interludes are more or less time before you can sing along with the instrumental.  The interlude after verse 1, 2, 3 is 4-counts.  The interlude after verse 4 is 8-counts. The interlude after verse 5, 6, 7 is 4-counts.  The interlude after verse 8 is 8-counts.

GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK

Singable Picture Books of the Great American Songbook and Michael Feinstein’s Foundation for the Preservation of the Great American Songbook
http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2011/09/10/american-songbook-singable-picture-books-and-michael-feinsteins-foundation-for-the-preservation-of-the-great-american-songbook/

This is just SUCH a FANTASTIC Illustrated Song.  It’s adorable, fun, funny, and FILLED with art references from which children can explore and get a deeply meaningful lesson in art history (see thumbnail images and links to artworks below).  It might be fun, too, to explore a little geography, if you look at a map with the children to see where you’d have to go to view each of these masterworks of art.

I’ve included this because this sculpture, which resides in the National Gallery Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC is one of my very favorite of all works of art.  I love its whimsy and reference.  It is funny, clever and profound all at once.  I’m also including it since I was worried teachers might night appreciate my bringing in a picture of the original THE THINKER, being a naked man and all, though, the sculpture (and its copy, like the one in Philadelphia, sits right out in the open for anyone of any age or sensibility to see).  But since THINKER ON A ROCK is a great alternative, I’m including it here and will gleefully share a picture of it with children in classrooms as part of the romp through art history that this book affords.

Addendum 11/28/2014

Peter Spier’s inimitable illustration is reissued in 2014, with artwork restored this illustrated song classic again shines gloriously.  In previous edition, half the pages were black and white.  Peter Spier went back to his original classic pictures and recolorized everything and added color where previously the pages were just black and white. This is very exciting!  It’s one of the kids’ favorite songs in classrooms and they are going to love this reissue.

HONEYKY HANUKKAH
Song by Woody Guthrie

It’s Honeyky Hanukah ’round and around,
Honeycake Hanukah, eat them down,
Latkes and goody things all over town,
It’s Honeyky Hanukah time.

It’s Honeyky Hanukah, shaky my hand,
My candles are burning all over this land,
To light the dark for the man passing by,
It’s Honeyky Hanukah time.

It’s Honeyky Hanukah, kissy my cheek,
The light in the window, it burns for a week,
I’ll open my present and take a little peek,
It’s Honeyky Hanukah time.

It’s Honeyky Hanukah, makes me feel glad,
This box for Mother and this box for Dad,
For sister and brother, nice ribbons I’ll tie,
It’s Honeyky Hanukah time.

It’s Honeyky Hanukah, huggy me tight,
It’s Hanukah day, and it’s Hanukah night,
If you’ve got no money, well, that’s all right,
It’s Honeyky Hanukah time.

It’s Honeyky Hanukah, kiss me some more,
We’ll sing and go dancing around on the floor,
Your kiss is nicer than cakes from the store,
It’s Honeyky Hanukah time.

It’s Honeyky Hanukah, brush my hair,
Let’s dance a big hora and jump in the air,
You look lots pettier to me every year
At Honeyky Hanukah time.

An epic song by Bruce Springsteen.  Epic illustrations by Frank Caruso beautifully match the lyrics.  An 8 minute songs that flies by in a wink.  The song and visual together create something of a short film, a short format modern western.
