Sing Out! has original illustrations, is rich in color and texture and offers an endearingly offbeat rendering of six cherished timeless folk songs featured in this book-CD: She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain, Little Bingo, This Old Man, Pop Goes the Weasel, I’ve Been Working on the Railroad and Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. Each one takes on a life of its own becoming a stand-alone story featuring several zany characters including an acrobatic pink-haired roller-skater girl, a straw hat-wearing unshaven hillbilly astronaut, a banjo-playing cow-loving weasel and a hard-working monkey who happens to love dumplings!
The picture book is accompanied by recordings of these popular sing-along songs for kids that highlight gifted singers and seasoned musicians, producing a fresh original sound for a new generation.
“I love the cover and the illustrations. It’s a beautiful hard-cover book with vintage-inspired drawings and colors. The concept of a musical book is interesting. My daughter loves books and singing.”
“It’s a great book for toddlers. It features 6 classic songs, remixed. The illustrations are fun and engaging. The characters travel through each story/song so it’s great to connect the dots. The music that goes with it are beautiful folk songs. We enjoyed listening to them even without the book.”
“I love the book, and I love the idea of accompanying it with music.”
“I like the remixed classic songs. Makes it more interesting to read!”
