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.

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.

I met with some girlfriends last night and one of them asked if I knew about Gustafer Yellogold.  Besides having one of the most wonderful sounding names ever, this name was new to me.

Googling this delightful fellow with the marvelous name reveals an amazing treasure trove of Illustrated Video Songs with Lyrics, online Illustrated Songs.  And terrific songs they are, too!

Morgan Taylor of Gustafer Yellowgold, performs, makes art and videos, and conducts art enrichment seminars.  His site offers great stuff like vlog posts about his programs, links to buy and download printed music and videos.

Here’s an example of one of his illustrated story song videos:
