LyricPop, a Series of Illustrated Popular Songs

Posted on: May 24, 2020

LyricPop is such an interesting, diverse series of songs. These are all songs you would hear on the radio, beautifully illustrated to share their song-stories, ideas, and cultural heritage with your children.

When we listen to songs on the radio, we are often most captivated by the music that the words were written to sing, and the words get lost in the beat and instrumentation.

But the words to these songs really stand on their own as stories and vehicles for ideas.  That’s what’s great about books like these. You can share these wonderful WORDS and IDEAS with children, separate from the music, so they can understand what is being said, before the music dominates the thought process.

The first 4 titles in this series will be released in early June 2020, a second set in October 2020,  and a third set in early 2021.
