JESUS LOVES ME, AN ILLUSTRATED SONG

Jesus Loves Me
Traditional Words and Music
Illustrated by Tim Warnes

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

I grew up knowing this song, so I was delighted to find this book.  I also love that the characters are animals. In this world where racism is so prevalent, even in subtle ways, I like to find illustrated songs in which race is not an issue.  When animals are illustrated instead of people with particular skin colors or nationalities, you can avoid this problem altogether.  When animals are the characters, every single child in the room can relate to the positive images in the book without  impediment.

This song was not in my regular repertoire, but I was recently asked to develop a list of songs for a visit with children at a Vacation Bible School.  I also didn’t have time to work with a musician to create an instrumental sing-along arrangement to put on a CD for singing it.  I decided to develop some guitar chords and accompany myself.

THE FLOWER CAROL, AN ILLUSTRATED SONG
https://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2011/08/31/the-flower-carol-tempus-adest-floridum-a-singable-picture-book/

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

I was recently asked to Sing Books for a Vacation Bible School evening with a religiously oriented Easter theme (as in not the Easter Bunny).  The Flower Carol immediately came to mind.  I’d developed this a while back, but only sang the more secular verses at schools, with the artwork of Arcimboldo that I’d first seen at an exhibit of his late 16th c./ early 17th c. work at the National Gallery in Washington, DC.

I wasn’t playing any guitar at the time, and singing this a-capella seems like the only option.  But since I have some chords in my guitar repertoire, I was able to fit some of them to work for accompanying myself to sing this wonderful carol.
