Woody's 20 Grow Big Songs

Woody Guthrie
Marjorie Mazia Guthrie

What kid doesn't love a good tune and a dance around the kitchen?  Good 'ol Woody Guthrie, king of folksingers, wrote bunches of songs for children.  This book, a collection that was lost for 40 years, includes the words, music, and even Woody's own drawings.  We've played some at the piano, and if I'm ambitious, I might even try some on the guitar.  I love how songs for children include so much action!

It's an unbelievable case of indigestion!  Follow along as the Doctor pulls out the most extraordinary things from one little boy's comically enlarged stomach.  Told in silhouettes with pops of color this is a very funny story rhyme to read aloud.  We haven't tried to perfom this for an audience, but how fun would that be?!
