Pass the Buck (a Fun Song About the Famous Faces and Places on American Money)
Words by Michael Dahl
Sing to the Tune of This Old Man
Illustrated by Brandon Reibeling

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

These songs set to familiar tunes do require a little practice.  Michael Dahl has done a great job fitting historical information to a familiar tune (in this case about the faces and places pictured on US money), but some of the rhymes don’t come naturally the first time around.  At least not for me.

But it’s worth the time to figure it out.  The songs ARE fun and it is great to sign a song and learn at the same time.

PASS THE BUCK is set to the familiar tune of THIS OLD MAN.  And it makes a terrific companion with my WHO IS ON THE UNITED STATES MONEY SONG (which is sung to the tune of the Can-Can).
