I have been writing this SING BOOKS WITH EMILY blog since November 2009 (I’m writing this post in July 2017) and I cannot believe I’m only now documenting the marvelous resource that is Wee Sing.

If you want to sing a song to kids, the first place to look for music is Wee Sing.  The books are extremely accessible and include melody, guitar chords, lyrics, and illustrations for every song.  Many songs include activity ideas, song origin tid-bit, and historical information.  It is amazing how much information is packed into these seemingly simple pages.  Not only THAT, but every little booklet has a nicely produced CD (let’s face it, lots of kid music can be outrageously irritating) so you can learn and sing along.

The Wee Sing website is incredible, too. It offers information about the books, song collections, videos, movies, activity ideas…

The Wee Sing series, and it’s creators Pamela Conn Beal and Susan Hagen Nipp, have done an incredible service to children with their work.  I feel deep gratitude to them for the resources they’ve provided me in facilitating my ability to share illustrated songs with kids.

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

Since the Wee Sing Series are compilations books of music (not a book illustrating a single song), I’ve not written much at all about the individual titles. And, because there is SO MUCH material in the Wee Sing canon, the Wee Sing Website is really the only place to find a comprehensive catalog of the offerings.

Suffice it to say, though, if you are looking for information about a song for kids, start with Wee Sing!

Individual titles in this list will be linked to titles about that particular book (as I am able to post them)
