Before the sun even rises, a confident group of birds is warming up their vocal cords preparing for a full day of singing. They perform solos and acapella and arpeggios. And they sing and sing–and sing some more! Until the day comes to an end and they decide…they’re actually pretty exhausted. But come morning, they have big plans to SING SOME MORE!!!
I received a copy of this picture book from Sleeping Bear Press in exchange for an honest review.
I am a huge fan of anything that Deborah Diesen writes, she has a way of drawing readers into a story. “Sing Some More” follows four spirited birds as they engage in a long day of singing. Starting at dawn, the birds begin their musical and do not end until nightfall. The text is written in rhyme and engages readers throughout the entire story. The text is also filled with music vocabulary with words like vocalize, ballads, and arpeggios making it a fantastic addition to any music lesson or unit. Readers will love stating the phrase “We’ll Sing Some More” throughout the book. The illustrations by Howard Gray are filled with vibrant colors and patterns. Readers will laugh out loud as they follow a young family who begins to resent the vocal birds. The back of the book has a glossary that shares the definitions of the music vocabulary used throughout the book. This is a must-have read-aloud for an elementary music teacher.
