The Music is You, a Singable Picture Book

Posted on: April 22, 2012

Rediscovering a song by John Denver…so few words, such a pretty music, and so perfectly nutshells how I feel about (and hope to share with) Singing Books:

THE MUSIC IS YOU
Words and Music by John Denver

Music makes pictures and often tells stories
All of it magic and all of it true
And all of the pictures and all of the stories
All of the magic, the music is you

**********************
I made a book so we can sing it together:


The Music is You
Music and Lyrics by John Denver
Book Assembled by Emily Leatha Everson Gleichenhaus

This book is for classroom or home use only.

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

John Denver recorded his song, “The Music is You” for his 1974 album “Back Home Again.”

Wiki article about this album, here:

I am a public school music teacher. How can I get a copy of this book to use in my classroom?

Hi Julie! I wrote an email to the address that came with this comment. I hope it reached you OK and you got the information. Best wishes, Emily

Hi, I am a Head Start teacher and we sing this song in my classroom all year long. I would love to find out how to get a copy of this book also. Thank you!
