Sing Books with Emily, the Blog

Archive for the ‘Singable Picture Book Video’ Category

With all my heart and soul, I love this song.  I think it is one of the best songs ever written.  This illustration by Eric Puybaret is incredibly beautiful and wonderfully includes the seldom heard introduction that Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg wrote for it.

Addendum 9/1/2015

A lovely comment to this blog reminded of Ella Fitzgerald’s version of OVER THE RAINBOW, which also includes the song introduction.  As with everything Ella Fitgerald did, it is just so good:

Goodnight Songs: A Celebration of the Seasons
Illustrated by Various Artists
Music by Emily Gary and Tom Proutt

*
Terrific interview with Amy Gary, who discovered the extraordinary unpublished stash of Margaret Wise Brown works, about MWB’s musical ambitions for her words:
http://music.cbc.ca/#!/blogs/2015/7/The-secret-songs-of-Goodnight-Moon-author-Margaret-Wise-Brown-10-things-you-didnt-know

My one big question is, where is all the music written by Margaret Wise Brown?  It is mentioned many times in the interview above, but why are none of her verses published which include her music?

GOODNIGHT SONGS: A CELEBRATION OF THE SEASONS is a gorgeous book.  The pictures from the various artists are lush and sweet, dolce and beautiful.  The songs on the CD are lovely, too.  The singing and musical instrumentation are very well done and the melodies are pretty.

I just hope to heaven they’ll make some stand alone books of the verses and match with them music written by Margaret Wise Brown herself.

My Woodland Wish
Words by Kate Endle and Caspar Babypants
Music by Caspar Babypants (Chris Ballew)
Illustrations by Kate Endle

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

Once I learn and get music made to sing this song, it would be fun to find finger puppets or simple costume items (or maybe just let the kids improvise) and let children in the classes play the parts of the animals to whom the song narrator sings.  Kids PreK-1 would have such fun slithering like a snake, staring like an owl or prowling like a raccoon.

It also would be fun to make up arm movements to represent each animal so that all kids in a visit could act along while we sing.

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

Here’s an adorable, but intriguing book for pre-schoolers that parents will love, too.  The cut paper pictures by Kate Endle are made gorgeously textured and painted papers in rich colors and humorous, simple but beautiful shapes.  The text is filled with chewy, challenging vocabulary.  The music is great, too, hip, groovy and captivating and interesting like secretly tracking a mythical creature in the woods by hiding behind trees. Reminds me of new, modern addition to the School House Rock repertoire.

Addendum, 7/6/2015

It’s a simple fact that seemingly simple Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes have a lot to offer.  I’m embracing these little songs this summer and creating books for individual rhymes, so as to sing them as individual songs.

Here’s one for HEY DIDDLE DIDDLE

EVERYONE SANG
Poem by Siegfried Sassoon (1886–1967)
From: Picture-Show (1920)
Musical Settings by Various Artists

EVERYONE suddenly burst out singing;
And I was filled with such delight
As prisoned birds must find in freedom,
Winging wildly across the white
Orchards and dark-green fields; on—on—and out of sight.

Everyone’s voice was suddenly lifted;
And beauty came like the setting sun:
My heart was shaken with tears; and horror
Drifted away … O, but Everyone
Was a bird; and the song was wordless; the singing will never be done.
