When You Wish Upon a Star
Music by Ned Washington
Words by Leigh Harline
Illustrated by Eric Puybaret

Publisher’s webpage for “When You Wish Upon a Star”

This beautiful book includes the song’s wonderful introduction which is not often heard or sung.

The book includes a CD with folk great Judy Collins singing the song, but she speaks the introduction and does not sing it…

Neil Diamond came through with the introduction in this video, you can use the video to sing along with the book.

Glen Miller’s band does not play the intro, but this is a terrific recording:
