The Illustrated Songs We Sang at Mary Riley Styles Library on 1/14/2017

Posted on: January 18, 2017

It’s always such a treat to visit Mary Riley Styles Library.  I got to sing with some familiar faces, and met some delightful new music loving friends.

I brought a whole set of songs to celebrate a Winter Theme , but also a lot of extras I knew kids love.  For this visit, the kids chose the songs out of the Sing Books boxes and we sang what they chose (listed in no particular order)…
