My "Song Stories" take a new approach to children's books. This first volume features five family-fun "Song Stories" for the young and young-at-heart. Every page is fully illustrated and each song is linked to a full color, original animated song. These songs and animations are by the author and friends and, as detailed below, are available on YouTube. With each animated music video freely accessible, young readers have several ways to enjoy themselves. They can just listen as they follow along in the book. They can also read or sing along for hours of fun because all of the words from each song are there along with pictures from the videos. The full color pictures and fun words can also help young readers develop their reading skills. Adults who are young-at-heart will enjoy joining in to make this a fun adventure for everyone.
