ILLUSTRATED SONGBOOKS AND COLLECTIONS (COMPILATIONS) OF CHILDREN’S SONGS WITH MUSIC
This list is populated by books that compile printed music and illustrations for children’s songs

Anyone who writes down to children is simply wasting his time. You have to write up, not down.
E. B. White

I was fascinated to find this quote today, surprised it had not presented itself sooner. But this is absolutely my philosophy for singing with children. By the way, unless it’s an accident, I don’t say “sing to children,” I say, “sing with children,” as singing, for me, is another form of conversation. In the same vein, I would never sing down to a child. Children are human beings and I sing with them like I sing with all humans: to share a story and have a conversation about it.

Frog and Toad Bicycle Built for Two
Traditional Words and Tune Adapted by ELEG for SBWE
Picture by Arnold Lobel

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

When I was a kid, my family had a light blue Schwinn tandem bicycle.  It was so much fun to ride. The song BICYCLE BUILT FOR TWO was always a little problematic for me.  I love the lilting waltzy tune and that it’s about two people in love. But singing to kids about how the couple can’t afford to have a family rubs me wrong.

But I recently re-stumbled upon Arnold Lobel’s image of Frog and Toad riding a tandem bicycle together:

img194 - Copy

Not sure why this didn’t occur to me as an idea before, but this time I instantly decided that picture provided the perfect opportunity to adapt the lyrics about Frog and Toad.  So that’s what I did.

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

Frog and Toad (written and illustrated by Arnold Lobel) is one of my favorite childhood book series.  This picture is the front of a puzzle box.

There is also an Adventure Game with this adorable illustration.

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

I was researching for Easter Songs that I could add to my repertoire and found Play-a-Song’s Here Comes Peter Cottontail (and Other Songs) sitting on my shelf. It’s a compilation of songs with adorable illustrations.  Books like these can often inspire your imagination and introduce you to songs you would not have otherwise considered. And flipping through it, I landed on BLUEBIRD BLUEBIRD.   Turns out it is very similar to another song LITTLE BIRD LITTLE BIRD which I already knew.  But I was able to find an already existing instrumental sing along track to go with BLUEBIRD, as opposed to LITTLE BIRD which requires me to play ukulele (not that there’s anything wrong with that) because LITTLE BIRD includes an additional section.  BLUEBIRD got me to thinking of the many ways in which the song could be used.  It can help really young kids learn colors and older kids to learn (or at least become interested in) the wonderful world of bird species.

I made a collage for a poster and used that to create a bird for every color of the rainbow.  In addition, I found a postcard collection by the great bird illustrator David Sibley to show kids different birds and incorporate them into subsequent verses of the song.  I also printed a collection of wonderful large bird portrait cards for the same purpose.

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

I ran across BLUEBIRD in a book of Easter songs and decided to develop it. I even found a good instrumental sing along for it.

Bluebird Bluebird Through My Window, an Illustrated Song
https://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2021/04/06/bluebird-bluebird-through-my-window

I designed the poster do that it could be sung with a collection of bird collages in each color of the rainbow.

A Sing Along Poster for:
White Coral Bells, an Illustrated Song
https://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2021/04/02/white-coral-bells-an-illustrated-song/

Lily of the Valley is on my list of favorite flowers and fragrances. It’s thrilling to happen upon a bed of them in blossom.
WHITE CORAL BELLS (another name for the lovely flowers) is an old song, but I’d never heard it until my friend Charlene sent it my way a couple of years ago. It’s been on my list of songs to develop ever since. But I wasn’t sure how to use it. The Covid Pandemic got me going on a project of making Sing Along Posters and this song is a perfect candidate for the collection which I got especially delighted to develop when I found music for the song in TOM GLAZER’S TREASURY OF FOLK SONGS FOR THE FAMILY. Though most of his arrangements are wonderfully playable and singable, Tom Glazer arranges this song in the key of Bb. It’s not only is too high for most people to enjoy singing, but is also out of my skill range to play on ukulele. Lower it just a few steps to G, though, and we are off to the races.

Delightfully, this song can also be sung as a round.

Let’s keep the arts alive, plant musical seeds of love and joy in our children, and enjoy the community and intellectual building Power of Music.
