Something Extra With the Book

In the last few years the library has seen more and more children's picture books arriving with a CD. Many of these books feature familiar singers such as Elvis Presley, Naomi Judd, Billy Joel and Pete Seeger. One of my favorite recording artists is John Lithgow reciting and singing Marsupial Sue and Carnival of the Animals. A title not to be overlooked is Yellow Umbrella by Jae Liu. This wordless picture book has wonderful illustrations and lively music. Look for some of these books at your local library.
