Sing Books with Emily, the Blog

I think OVER THE RAINBOW is a perfect song.  So wonderful, so heartfelt and beautiful, it even transcends what some might consider its cliche.

PIE
Pie, Pie, Pie! A Celebration of Pie in my Hoosier Family Heritage and in Singable Picture Books

I’ve made no mystery about my love for the Twinkle tune (and all its variations).

Here’s two pictures for Twinkle Star.

The first one I found in a book of lullaby poems illustrated by Kay Chorao.  It is one of my favorite illustrations for The Star, especially fitting the later (much less heard) verse that mentions the traveler in the dark.

This next twinkle is a picture that my daughter made a few years ago (dated 2014). I liked and so scanned it, but must have forgotten in the flurry of activity that always swirls through our lives.  I found it by serendipity last evening and thought, “Oooo I just love that.”
