Sing Books with Emily, the Blog

Singable Picture Book Lists for Special Occasions & Interests

Welcome to the Sing Books with Emily page of  Singable Picture Books Lists which celebrate holidays, special events, and areas of study.

This page, begun in late June 2010, is perpetually “Under Construction.”  Keep checking in to find new lists!

Each entry will get a brief description and a link to the list’s blog post, which I will continually update over time as I discover new research items and Singable Picture Books.

These lists are “general” in that they contain every Singable Picture Book I can find which fits into each category.  For a list of specially chosen sets for sharing on specific subjects, visit: http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/songbook-sets/
