Traditional Words and Tune
Illustrated by Floyd Cooper

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

This song can be easy to play on the guitar, so it is nice to accompany yourself and others while singing.  Doing this allows you to alter your playing to match the meaning of each verse, chose which verses to sing or not, or even make up your own, rather than sticking to the set instrumental.

Just a page on a notebook? A list? Yes. But to me, it’s much more than that. This list represents 45 minutes of Sing Books joy at Mary Riley Styles Library this morning. I especially loved the chance to try out my new ukulele arrangement for BRING A TORCH JEANNETTE ISABELLA. We also sang favorites like I WANT A HIPPOPOTAMUS FOR CHRISTMAS, SILVER BELLS, and HANUKKAH O HANUKKAH. I played ukulele, kazoo, jingle sticks for many songs and my beloved limberjack horse while we sang Jingle Bells, including the verse with Fanny Bright. Such great fun! Ps: Many Thanks to my daughter Eloise who came and helped me set up, clean up, and hold books when I accompanied with ukulele. And HUGE thanks to the marvelous staff and volunteers at MRSL who make it such a nice place to visit. @littlecitylibrary

SING BOOKS WITH EMILY 12/10/2018 WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS, an Illustrated Song https://bit.ly/2zRigV7 I especially like the Nosy Crow Illustration of this cheerful benedictive holiday jingle. The book is a creative thing with cute movable parts. And they don’t try to do too much with the text. They illustrate just the most recognizable lyrics and let you and the kids move on. I love that they don’t make up new lyrics, as if the standard ones need an upgrade. Another thing this illustration has going for it are the characters as animals, they are cute and don’t exclude any kid’s attributes from finding something to relate to the fun. I assembled some easy ukulele chords into a song sheet that fits this sweet set of lyrics. It’s a free printable in the song’s post.
