Rise Up Singing a struggling singer...I love this book. It contains lyrics to over 1200 songs. The music isn't included so you need to know the tune--however, it's amazing how many hundreds of songs we can all actually sing when provided with lyrics. I flip through and find songs to sing with my son at bedtime. It also solves that horrible dilemma of having just a few lines stuck in one's head. My favourites include Yellow Submarine, Big Yellow Taxi, Blowin' in the Wind, Froggie Went a Courtin', and Farewell to Nova Scotia. Thanks Peter Blood and Annie Patterson for creating this collection.
And the illustrations by Kore Loy McWhirter...stunning...
