TNDARLN songs suitable for illustration (62* d) RE: songs suitable for illustration 22 Jan 02


The Rattlin' Bog would be great! Just make sure you give us a clear picture of a bog please!

Drinking Gourd has been done. Don't think Clementine has been [and then I have to explain herring boxes to non-coastal kids]. Children, Go Where I Send Thee would be good [counting and visual] Few cowboy songs have been done, and kids today are less familiar with the whole concept/vocabulary than we were a....several years ago. [smile]

Music in Motion [musicmotion.com] lists just about all the books that illustrate songs in their catalog. I'm sure I'll think of more titles, given time.

As a suggestion, let me recommend to you any of Peter Spier's books on songs: The Star-Spangled Banner, Erie Canal, London Bridge, etc. He does detailed, historically accurate illustrations that help so much in a classroom! I didn't know, for example, what a "rampart" was until I saw his book.

Though it's not a song, I have a beautifully done book of Annabel Lee, which makes me wonder if Barbara Allen couldn't be done too.....Good Luck and Keep Us Posted Here!
