C’mon an Swing in My Tree, a Singable Picture Book

Posted on: March 5, 2012

This is a CD wrapped in a Singable Picture Book!

There’s a 12 song CD in this book, with one of the songs, “C’mon an’ Swing in My Tree,” Illustrated in a board book by Giselle Potter.


C’mon an Swing in My Tree (The Sunflowers)
Words and Music by Michael Taylor Fontaine
Illustrated by Giselle Potter

It’s one of those great works of modern children’s music that parents can enjoy right along with the kids.
Funny, witty words and a groovy indie-rock, honky-tonk sound.  Delightful!

The illustrations are terrific, too.  With thick paint, deep colors, and whimsical treatment of the characters, this is a Singable Picture Book jewel.

I hope they make a full size version so that all the kids sitting on the carpet can see!

I also hope they make lots and lots more Singable Picture Books which also include instrumental sing-along tracks.
Keep ’em comin’ Sunflowers!!
