The picture books on this page are unique because the text follows the traditional song lyrics. I've recorded the songs so the melody can be learned or used to read and sing along. The songs are sung slowly to allow for turning the pages. Offering families these songs in picture book format lets them "read" the lyrics to songs they already know, giving them the experience of sharing books together even if have little or no literacy. 

All titles were in print as of April, 2015. You can find used or new copies online by going to Bookfinder.com. This website lists titles new and used from all Internet sellers so you can shop and compare. To search for a library book, go to Worldcat.org and search by geographic area. These two sites offer the most efficient way to locate these titles. especially if they are out of print.
