Sing Books with Emily, the Blog

Author Archive

Sing Books visits 30 classes, PreK – 3rd grade, at 3 schools in Northern Virginia in every two week rotation.

There are few things you can do that are more enriching, healthy, and rewarding than singing a song with children (or anyone of any age, for that matter).

I’ve listed the songs randomly to see them individually, as works of art that tell stories, rather than just a stale alphabetical list.  Each title is linked to a post, a kind of cabinet of curiosities, about that song.

In each class, we sang a selection from the following list:

Sing Books with Emily is very much looking forward to presenting a bird themed program called BIRDS OF A FEATHER at Reston Regional Library, partnered with the wonderful storyteller/librarian Marcia Wines.  Miss Marcia selected a number of bird related picture books to include in the program and has written a few thoughts for each one.

About the program, Miss Marcia says, “Birds of a feather flock together and it is our mutual love of all creatures winged that bring Miss Emily and I to this joyful collaboration and celebration of our avian friends!”

Thoughts about GREEN GRASS GREW ALL AROUND Audience Participation Activity by Marcia Wines:

 One of the very first memories I have as a child is of my dear godmother, Aunt Marcy, sitting down with me in the shade of a large tree in our backyard on Frederick Street in Detroit, Michigan, regaling me while introducing me to the “Green Grass Grew All Around”. I sing it now in her sweet and previous memory…

No celebration of birds would be complete without an all-out, rollicking, audience participation rendition of the “Green Grass Grew All Around, lavishly presented with puppets and props! “Shake that grass!”

Miss Marcia will conduct a scarf dance activity with the song, “Little Bird, Little Bird” by Elizabeth Mitchell from her Smithsonian Folkways album YOU ARE MY LITTLE BIRD.

Thoughts about LITTLE BIRD LITTLE BIRD Scarf Dance Activity by Marcia Wines:

You never know what treasures lie upon the endless shelves of CDs at a Goodwill Store, in Illinois, no less!  I found “You Are My Little Bird”, a Smithsonian Folkways Recording by Elizabeth Mitchell in such a place!  Love to sing it as a circle dance with scarves.

The Sleepy Songbird
By Suzanne Barton

Thoughts about THE SLEEPY SONGBIRD by Marcia Wines.

The Sleepy Songbird
By Suzanne Barton

“Faith is a bird that feels the light and sings when dawn is still dark.”

Every morning it happens.  Before the sun even thinks of beginning its morning journey across the sky, it is as if some feathered conductor, maesto, celebrated virtuoso, if you will, strikes his baton and the darkened sky erupts with song all at the same time. I have always wanted to honor that monemt by naming it. What am I hearing? I now know. I am hearing the “dawn chorus” as so beautifully expressed in  Suzannne Barton’s The Sleepy Songbird.

A little ceramic bird whistle that my sister brought me from China aptly helps me tell this tale.

welcome brown bird (Ray, Sylada)
Welcome, Brown Bird
By Mary Lyn Ray
Illustrated by Peter Sylvada

Thoughts about WELCOME, BROWN BIRD by Marcia Wines:

Welcome, Brown Bird
By Mary Lyn Ray
Mary Lyn Rae lives in an old farmhouse in South Danbury, New Hampshire, where she devotes much of her time to conservation. Since 1987, when she bought a field to prevent development, she and her neighbors have joined in protecting over 5000 acres of farm and forest.” It is no surprise that her books reflect her passion. Using an Audubon plush bird with authentic bird calls, I bring to life Mary Lyn Ray’s Welcome, Brown Bird, a poignant story of migration and the two boys, thousands of miles apart, who eagerly await her return…

15 star and stripe flag eleg sbwe 1795-1818 - Copy

Our National Anthem is wonderful story song about an actual historical event. And it is thoughtful, asking questions and leaving each of us with the responsibility to answer those questions for ourselves. I suspect that many folks don’t know the story behind it, why or how it came to be written, maybe not even the words, or what the words mean.

I’ve decided to do my part in helping children know why and how this song came to be written.  My goal is to help children understand the words, what they mean, and to help each of the kids decide for themselves how the National Anthem fits with their understanding of the country and as of themselves as citizens.

I’ve written a short “Imagine This” essay to accompany the song.  I also researched a number of versions and assembled a set of chords to accompany myself with ukulele when I sing it.

I hope you will join me!

To accompany the singing of STAR SPANGLED BANNER

OUR FLAG IS STILL THERE
By Emily Gleichenhaus

Imagine this. Your name is Francis Scott Key. You are a 34 year old American lawyer living and working in the Georgetown section of Washington, DC. The date is a Tuesday, September 13, 1814 and your country, the United States of America, is engaged in a conflict with Great Britain that will become known as the War of 1812.

You are being held on a boat of the British Navy, in Baltimore Harbor, just off shore from Fort McHenry. You are there because, a few days before, you traveled from Georgetown to Baltimore to visit the British Fleet, which was now menacingly anchored in Baltimore harbor. Your job was to negotiate (with the permission of President James Madison) the release of your friend and client, Dr. William Beanes, who the British had captured. You were successful in acquiring your friend’s freedom, but with a catch. You were told that the British intended to attack Fort McHenry and that you would not be let go until after the battle was over. The British didn’t want you to give out any warnings as to what was about to happen.

It is now dawn of the following morning. The British have spent the whole night attacking Fort McHenry with rockets and bombs. As the sun is just now sending a few light rays over the horizon, you anxiously look towards the fort. You are struck with pride and relief to see that the American Stars and Stripes flag is still flying over the fort’s walls. Seeing this, you know the Americans have prevailed, for, if the British had seized the fort, they would have run their own flag up that pole.

You are so inspired that poetry fills your head and you set to the task of writing it out. The first verse of your poem (which you set to the rhythms of a popular bar song) is full of questions, as you process the overwhelming emotion about this glorious victory. You assemble poetic words to ask your readers, and posterity, questions like, “Do you see, this morning, in the first light of day, that same flag that we saw bravely flying over the fort as the sun went down last night? Do you see that same flag that we caught glimpses of during the night when flashes of fire from exploding bombs and contrails of rockets briefly lit the sky? Could it really be true that our Stars and Stripes flag still flies over this land and that we can still call it the United States of America?”

The answer to that question in September 1814 was, “Yes!” And, thanks to hard work and bravery of fellow Americans ever since, now, in 2018, the answer is still, “Yes!”

The first verse of Francis Scott Key’s four stanza poem became the American National Anthem in March of 1931, we still sing the song and ask the questions in Francis Scott Key’s famous rhyme,

Oh say can you see by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave?

Yes. The answer is yes.
