Sing Books with Emily, the Blog

Itsy Bitsy Snowman (a real cute little illustrated song for the cutest little ones)

Posted on: November 8, 2016

There is a whole series of these “Itsy Bitsy” adaptations.  Published as board books, they really are charming.  Itsy Bitsy Snowman is real cute, too.

When I sing this with the kids, I ask a grown up volunteer to hold the book and turn the pages and I accompany the singing with guitar, using the chord arrangement I assembled to fit the adaptation to the familiar tune ITSY BITSY SPIDER.

This little illustrated board book will be a very enjoyable addition tot he songs for singing to the pre-school set.

The words fit easily with rhyme and are easy to sing with the tune.  The pictures are soft, cute, and comforting.

THE ITSY BITSY SNOWMAN
Words by Jeffrey Burton
Traditional Tune

C
The itsy bitsy snowman

G7                      C
Climbed up the snowy hill

He jumped on a sled

G7
And slid slid fast

C
What a thrill

C
He zipped past the children

G7                         C
skating on the ice

Then the itsy bitsy snoman

G7                                  C
Dodged a snowball fight

 

C
The itsy bitsy snowman

G7                      C
Went sledding into town

Looking at the snowflakes

G7                      C
Softly falling down

Out came his friends

G7                     C
To lend a happy hand

And everything was perfect

G7                       C
In his winter wonderland
