I grew up in a household of readers. We were required to read each day as children – especially during the summer. Those frequent trips to the library have resulted in a lifetime of reading. During my sessions, I love to share singable books.  This post is the first in a series.

Today’s books give a nod to the many US patriotic holidays that happen during the summer months. Published by Picture Window Books and illustrated by Todd Ouren, I have used these resources with a variety of younger children. The songs include:

  • America the Beautiful
  • America
  • The Star Spangled Banner
  • When Johnny Comes Marching Home
  • Yankee Doodle
  • You’re a Grand Old Flag

Watch this to learn more about the books. 

Be watching for future singable books. In the mean time here are a few others:

  1. JoAnn!!! I am the author/illustrator of a “sing-able” patriotic picture book. Seriously.

    My newest picture book, “Red, White and Blue” is based on the lyrics of a song I wrote by that title. The book comes with its own CD recording in the back. I also include a chart of sign language to support the text.

    Found your blog, through your comment left on another’s blog.
