sing me a story

What's better that reading a book?!  Singing a book - of course!  Each time we visit the library to check out books, I try to find at least one that is based on a song.  Much to the amusement of Hubs - whose singing is typically limited to the shower - these end up being the books that Elise asks to read over and over and over again!

Here's a little list of some of our favorite singable books.  Please feel free to add yours in the comments!
  • Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes by Annie Kubler
  • Mary Wore Her Red Dress and Henry Wore His Green Sneakers by Merle Peek
  • Baby Beluga by Raffi
  • There Was a Tree by Rachel Isadora
  • Down by the Station by A. Twinn
  • If You're Happy and You Know It by Jane Cabrera
  • Over in the Meadow by John Langstaff 

3/17 UPDATE!!!  I can't believe I left out Fiddle-I-Fee by Will Hillenbrand - one of our very favorites! 

***This post was inspired by Sixtine et Victoire's March reading list.  Be sure to check it out!***


  1. Over in the Meadow is a personal favorite for me. I sing it sometimes to children who get upset or anxious in class and it soothes them. I was just singing it to the baby this morning. :)

    1. Oh, I love that! I'm getting excited for your baby! :)

  2. That's a lovely idea for a post, Anne! Thanks for highlighting these books, we don't have many actually and you have helped me realise that. I am especially curious about the Baby Beluga one as Finn likes the song, and Over in the Meadow, which he likes as well.
