Friendship in Illustrated Song

Posted on: May 8, 2016

 

Someone asked me recently to bring songs having to do with friendship to an upcoming Sing Books visit.

Here’s a list to collect up some ideas for songs about friendship, good wishes for another person, and ideas that lead to forming and nurturing friendship.
