I'm wanting to keep sharing some of the influential books from my childhood, and to do that I can't leave out songbooks!
I grew up with music, books, pictures, and art all around me as a child. My mother was a passionate picture book lover, and to this day won't let me keep some of my favorites as a child. But this book (probably because she doesn't play the piano any more) is one she did hand down.
Gorgeous art. I think I was 12 before I realized that Bethlehem didn't actually look like that magical snow covered German village. That's how much I believed in these illustration!
I love that this is a song book with the music right there to play for your children. We use this book all the time, and I love teaching them these old forgotten songs.
Do you have books that have been passed down from your childhood? What are you favorites?
