Jane Yolen’s Songs of Summer
By Jane Yolen and Adam Stemple
Illustrated by Cyd Moore
Thirteen delightful songs about summer–some from America, some from Europe, and some new to this book–all scored for piano with guitar chords, give voice to the enchantment of the season.
The collection of original and traditional songs from around the world — lazy ballads, energetic rounds and folk tunes, light marches, and even a yodeling song from Switzerland — conveys the overall feeling of summer rather than focusing directly on the season itself. The lively and lovely warm-weather romp is scored for piano, guitar, and voice and illustrated with gleeful watercolors throughout.
