Sing Books with Emily, the Blog

Day 162: 365 Days of Illustrated Song 2016

Posted on: June 10, 2016

FIVE LITTLE DUCKS is fun for kids because they learn to sing it quickly.  For the youngest ones, it’s got the added benefit of counting.  You can also use a lot of humor in it.  As a mom, I can relate to the panicky mother duck as her ducklings waddle off for a little independence.  Of course they all come back!

My favorite variation (and one of my all time favorite illustrated songs) is FIVE LITTLE GEFILTES.  Using lots of marvelous Jewish Humor and Yiddish, the book includes a glossary in the back.
