From time to time I teach Sunday School at my church. These singable stories would be appropriate for Sunday Schools, religion classes, or just sharing with a child. Check them out!
I hope you enjoy these books. Which is your favorite? Let me know in the comments.

Some singable stories can be used with recordings, read, or sung live. Today’s selections work all these ways. These books are:
“Rock Steady” by Sting, illustrated by Hugh Whyte The story of Noah’s ark is retold using toe tapping music available from various sources. The illustrations are bright and eye catchy. I would recommend this book for ages 3-8 years of age. Older children can compare and contrast the story to other versions.
“The Jazz Fly” by Matthew Gollub, illustrated by Karen Hanke This book comes with a CD that helps set a wonderful jazz tone. It is fun to create your own flies and have the group scat when not using the recording. It can be a way to introduce various instruments including a bass, sax, piano, and drums. I would use this book with 4-8 year olds.
