YANKEE DOODLE, AN ILLUSTRATED SONG

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


Yankee Doodle
Traditional Music
Words by Dr. Richard Shackburg
Illustrated with Woodcuts by Ed Emberley

I cannot deny a particular affinity to vintage woodcut illustrations by Ed Emberley.  His 1965 illustrations for YANKEE DOODLE are no exception.  The whole book is a terrific rendition of one of our most beloved American songs.  The book’s illustrations, the lyrics he chose (among many choices), and historical information in the book combine to make a fantastic package.  It’s a marvelous book.

I’m sharing here the page of lyrics and guitar chords that I assembled to share this illustrated song in its entirety with kids in their classrooms.  Doing this offers an opportunity to enjoy many verses that are not often sung and to explore the history of these lyrics and the song as a whole.
