Picture Book 10 for 10 – Sing Along

10 Aug

Picture Book 10 for 10 - Sing Along.png

There’s nothing as exciting as singing along to a picture book and gaining everyone’s attention – kids love music and song (regardless of how horribly you sing!) and if want to try to get attention in storytime, at home or while babysitting, try singing along instead of just reading – you’ll be amazed! I loved to sing along to books in storytime, it holds its own special power and really engages kids with the book. Here are ten titles that I’ve sang, chanted and loved – enjoy!

  1. If You’re Happy and You Know It: Jungle Edition by James Warhola
  2. Ten in the Bed by John Butler
  3. Down By the Station by Jennifer Riggs Vetter, illustrated by Frank Remkiewicz
  4. I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More! by Karen Beaumont, illustrated by David Catrow
  5. Row, Row, Row Your Boat by Jane Cabrera
