What if your brother Jacques was a baker?  Bakers have to get up very early in the morning to have their products ready for morning shoppers.  What if your brother Jacques didn’t hear the church bells to wake him up?

The INDESTRUCTIBLES series of books publishes a version of Frere Jacques.  The pictures of this version are particularly adorable and look delicious!  The colors are bright and beautiful, the collages of cut paper, candy, and gingerbread are fun and fanciful. And it is set in a magical, confectionery Paris.

This version does, being for little babies, does not have the Frere Jacques rhyme’s words printed on the pages (though the words to the original rhyme, in French and English, are printed on the back cover).  Since I liked the pictures so much, I came up with some words to fit them.

Introducing Baker Jacques’ Yum Yum Song!

We were singing BAKER JACQUES in Miss Robin’s Pre-K class at Tuckahoe Elementary the other day.  When the song was over, I put down my guitar, but a little fella named Mason kept on singing the tune with the word “Yummy.”  It was adorable and one of those magical little things that happen that deserve to be remembered!

So, in honor of my cute little pal, Mason, here’s Baker Jacques and his Yum Yum Song:
