We Love Books: Books in the Music Room - Kipper



I love incorporating children's literature into my music lessons - it's becoming an addiction of mine.

There's something magical about reading a story about someone having white shoes and blue shoes (Pete the Cat) and then going straight into a song about white shoes and blue shoes! (Zapatitos Blancos)


Kipper is a new favorite of mine, partially mostly because Kipper looks a lot like my dog! (see below for reference) At any rate, it's an adorable story by Mick Inkpen about a dog who is tired of his old basket, old blanket and old bunny so he goes out to find something new. It has a sweet ending and is a great transition to any number of dog songs! (Doggie Bow Wow Blue anyone?)



"Are you looking at me?"

**Can you see the stack of music books in the back? :-)
Shout out to Gaby and Phil and Michael! I think Lamar's book is back there, too!


Have you found any great children's books lately?
