singing in the rain, hopgood cover - Copy
Singing in the Rain
Words by Arthur Freed
Music by Nacio Herb Brown
Illustrated by Tim Hopgood

These are words I’ve long wanted to write, “SINGING IN THE RAIN, an illustrated song.” Thanks to the marvelous illustrator Tim Hopgood, it’s a dream come true.  The book really IS a dream come true. The pictures are gorgeous.  Watercolors backgrounds, delightfully satisfying in rich jewel toned ombre rainbow washes. Children play and dance and fly on top of these backgrounds, adventuring through rainy cityscapes and jungles.  You want to join them!  You want to SING THE SONG!

JINGLE BELLS, IN ILLUSTRATED SONG
https://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2011/03/04/jingle-bells-in-the-history-of-space-and-singable-picture-books/

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

I think Ella Fitzgerald’s is my favorite recording of Jingle Bells.  Her Christmas Album, Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas, is one of the best of the best.  Someone put the whole album on YouTube, HERE.

 

 

I recently made a song sheet with (SIMPLE!, since that’s what I can play) guitar chords to fit (and to accompany myself while singing with kids) a new (and really pretty) illustration of Jingle Bells (illustrated by Susan Jeffers).

No illustration that I know of, though, illustrates ALL the lyrics that Pierpont wrote for his poem. And, for example, I LOVE the seldom sung verse that Ella Fitzgerald sings in her recording of Jingle Bells for Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas, (one of my very favorite Christmas records).

So, I set out to find the full set of lyrics and fit to them the set of (SIMPLE) guitar chords I assembled. The attached Sing Books blog post has the results. There are two (free, printable) PDFs in it. One with guitar chords and one with just the words. I drew the title header so that kids could color and decorate them like a coloring page.

The less seldom sung verses of Pierpont’s poem are a lot of fun, with wonderful (as my friend and mentor Judy Simmons would say) CHEWY words in them (like CRACK and SPRAWLING). I highly suggest enjoying the whole kit and kaboodle.

https://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2011/03/04/jingle-bells-in-the-history-of-space-and-singable-picture-books/

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

I’m still waiting for someone to illustrate ALL (or even more) of Pierpont’s JINGLE BELLS lyrics in a picture book rendition.  But while I’m waiting, this illustration by Susan Jeffers is a beautiful delight.  It’s got a little surprise at the end, so I have drawn up a simple guitar arrangement to play and sing it.  I think it would be fun to sing this version with the guitar and then pick up the limberjack horse to sing it again, with the extra verses.

LIMBERJACK SONGS FOR SBWE
https://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2015/10/09/limberjack-songs-for-sing-books-with-emily/

A couple featured songs:

I especially like CHELSEA MORNING as a Halloween song because of the imaginative monster fairies illustrated by Brian Fraud for this marvelous song by Joni Mitchell. I’ll use any possible excuse to sing it.

I was out walking and saw a fox once out on a chilly night. It was exciting.  That fox was beautiful, mostly rusty red with accents of black and white.  It was trotting right across the striped road markings of a cross walk. Just like you do.

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

I have the great privilege to Sing Books with 30 classes of kids at 3 different schools (Tuckahoe Elementary, Carlin Springs Elementary, and Timber Lane Elementary) in every 2 week Sing Books rotation.

In the period of 10/10 – 10/20, 2017, we were thinking a lot of Autumn and Halloween. Another focus, which will be ongoing from here forward, is the idea that KINDNESS IS CONTAGIOUS.  This credo is Tuckahoe Elementary’s 2017/2018 school year theme and I’ve taken it to heart as a mission.  Many songs can be fitted into this idea and I intend to spread the word by singing it!

In each class, we sang a selection of the following illustrated songs (randomly listed),

SING BOOKS WITH EMILY REPERTOIRE OF ILLUSTRATED SONG
https://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/the-sing-books-with-emily-repertoire-of-illustrated-song/

There is a whole series of these “Itsy Bitsy” adaptations.  Published as board books, they really are charming.

Itsy Bitsy Pilgram allows for a sweet, age appropriate way to introduce some of the themes of Thanksgiving, from the pilgrims and why they came. to the native peoples and how they helped the pilgrims to survive.

When I sing this with the kids, I ask a grown up volunteer to hold the book and turn the pages and I accompany the singing with guitar, using the chord arrangement I assembled to fit the adaptation to the familiar tune ITSY BITSY SPIDER.

ONE LITTLE, TWO LITTLE, THREE LITTLE PILGRIMS
https://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2016/01/08/one-little-two-little-three-little-pilgrims-an-illustrated-song/

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

I just LOVE it when something out in the world makes a connection with one of the illustrated songs in my repertoire.

During Thanksgivingtime, it’s fun to sing the illustrated song, One Little, Two Little, Three Little PilgrimsI’ve been singing it in almost every Sing Books visit since Halloween. This past weekend, I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts (SAYS YOU on NPR, a fun game show about words, the 11/17/2017 episode).  The Round 3 segment of this episode interviewed a woman who is reviving the Wampanoag language.  They are the tribe of Native people who first helped the Pilgrims survive when they landed in 1620. The connection is that the Wampanoag are mentioned in  the cute little illustrated song that’s been fun singing with kids in their classrooms.  What I love about the song is that it is sweet, simple, and age appropriately accessible, but still imparts some useful information about the the experience of pilgrims and native peoples.  The podcast is great fun for illuminating a little more of the language the Wampanoag people would have spoken when the pilgrims arrived.

You can listen to the entire podcast or begin at 23 minutes, 29 seconds (the beginning of Round 3) to hear this segment of the show:
