DOE A DEER WISHES:

It is great fun to sing this song.  I’ve been using a paired down arrangement.  Eventually, I’d like to create a slightly altered arrangement with new sing along track that includes the music and lyrics for:

When you know the notes to sing
You can sing most anything…

At the same time as I stumbled upon an adorable illustrated rendition of MY FAVORITE THINGS, I also found that QuartoKnows.com had published a beautiful version of the song DO RE ME.  Both of these illustrated songs are part of a series, promisingly called “Broadway Baby.”  I hope QuartoKnows publishes a lot more titles for that series!

The illustrations by Miriam Bos are rendered in gorgeous colors, all done in a retro, Tyrolean feel as they dash around, play, and sing in an alpine setting. The book is charming beyond belief and it is will be great fun to use it for sharing this marvelously sing-alongable ditty from the Great American Songbook.

I especially love that the children are purposefully multiculural.  There are children from many cultural backgrounds in the classrooms I visit and this has made me keenly aware of the images of children depicted in the books I sing.  It’s been difficult to find illustrations in which the children depicted were anything but white.  But with QuartoKnows publications of MY FAVORITE THINGS and DO RE ME, every kid I sing with will be able to find a character in the books with whom they can identify.

I LOVE singing THANKS A LOT, by Raffi. It feels especially relevant at Thanksgivingtime, but really, we should feel free to express gratitude all year long. I brought it along to my performance at Mary Riley Styles Library today. First we sang the whole song as Raffi wrote it, while I played ukulele and library volunteer Jordan held the book and turned the pages. Then I asked 4 kids to share with me things they are thankful for. They said: “my whole family,” “the whole wide world,” “tasteful food,” my mommy and daddy.” Finally, we sang the song a second time filling in the children’s gratitudes. It always feels great to do that activity. And the song, though super simple, is prayer like and meditative. I’m looking forward to singing it again.
Some of the set up for Sing Books this morning at Mary Riley Styles Library. We sure had lots of fun. Next time at MRSL is December 15. Come and sing along!! @LittleCityLibrary

SBWE DAILY SONG 11/8/2018 PREAMBLE SONG (from Schoolhouse Rock), an Illustrated Song BITLY LINK https://bit.ly/2RIQ9Oh There is so much to unpack with the PREAMBLE SONG. This song will be relevant and important for children to know and sing and heard sung as long as we have a United States governed by a Constitution. It seems particularly important right now. For me personally, this was a song I grew up with. Schoolhouse Rock played a huge role in forming my world view and sense of cultural heritage. PREAMBLE SONG was one of my favorites. When I was in Middle School and faced a pop quiz to write out the Preamble to the Constitution, I aced it, because I knew the song. Today’s picture shows a postcard of Mike Wilkins’ art work Preamble, which you can stand in front of by the gift shop at National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. You can enjoy this work while singing two songs to yourself, FIFTY NIFTY STATES (as there is a license plate for every state and the District of Columbia) and THE PREAMBLE SONG (as the plates phonetically express the words of The Preamble). A little note, the song leaves out the words, “of the United States,” at the very beginning.
