It will be fun to ask for kid volunteers to be fireflies when we sing this little ditty.

‪I don’t remember when my daughter made this picture. Maybe she was 5 or 6. It’s hard to believe I didn’t note the date on it. None the less, and needless to say, this is one of my possessions most dear to my heart.‬ ‪❤️‬ #SingBooksWithEmily #IllustratedSong #SingToKidsOfAllAges #Enrichment #SingToChildren #ChildrensMusic #PictureBookSong #Music #Sing #ShareCulturalHeritage #EducationalEnrichment #CulturalEnrichment #Children #Kids #CultureConnectsUs
SING BOOKS WITH EMILY 1/10/2019 BOTH SIDES NOW, an Illustrated Song https://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2011/03/07/both-sides-now-a-singable-picture-book-and-my-business-with-the-cloud-artwork-at-the-corcoran/ BITLY LINK https://bit.ly/2D175Lk BOTH SIDES NOW, a classic song by the great singer/musician/songwriter Joni Mitchell. It’s such a rich and full song about how we experience life. It’s the illusions I recall, still, truly, about all of it, too. I do a lot of thinking about things. In the end, though, for me, very often, I’m happy to let magical thinking win the day. To find more info and materials about this song, visit the link in this posting or type the song title into the search box of the Sing Books with Emily blog: http://SingBooksWithEmily.wordpress.com Like or Follow Sing Books with Emily on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter Come Sing Books with Emily #SingBooksWithEmily #IllustratedSong #SingToKidsOfAllAges #Enrichment #SingToChildren #ChildrensMusic #PictureBookSong #Music #Sing #ShareCulturalHeritage #EducationalEnrichment #CulturalEnrichment #Children #kids #JoniMitchell

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
