CANDY CANE SONG
Just as I was trying to decide what the next entry would be, my daughter Eloise came to me and said “Mommy, I have a poem.”  The poem became a tune and we knew we had the answer to my question right here.

CANDY CANE SONG
Poem by Eloise Pauline Gleichenhaus
Tune by Her Mother Emily

Candy cane, candy cane
Red and white
Minty as Christmas
Red as the light
White as the
Blanket of snow
That comes down
Candy cane candy
What a beautiful sight.

I love this song that my daughter and I made up and wanted to be able to sing it all year long.  And, I wanted a version that everyone would enjoy regardless of holiday religious observations, so I created I created this sheet with guitar chords and changed a single word:

Addendum, 2/20/2016

If only I was an octopus so that I could show the book for a song when I sing it for kids and play the the guitar.  When kids see the words while singing a song, the children begin to make an association between the symbols and the way the symbols sound. And, since a picture is worth a thousand words, the illustrations make things more interesting.

For songs that require me to play guitar, I’ll ask for a nice volunteer (a teacher, caregiver, parent or an older child) to hold the book and flip the pages as we move through the song.

I made this book to go with the Candy Cane Song, which was originally a poem written by my daughter Eloise, so that one of the nice volunteers can help the kids see text and pictures as we sing.
