Folk Songs:
Gonna Sing My Head Off! American Folk Songs for Children Collected and Arranged by Kathleen Krull, Illustrated by Allen Garns

This is the songbook I have been searching for ever since Juliet was born. It has some of my very favorites that I have been unable to find anywhere else. There are also a ton more that I don't even know and I am sure are just as wonderful. Here are the ones we love:

34. Buffalo Gals
35. Clementine
36. Down in the Valley
37. Git Along, Little Dogies
38. Go Tell it On the Mountain
39. Home on the Range
40. I've Been Working on the Railroad
41. Michael Row the Boat Ashore
42. Oh, Susannah!
43. On Top of Old Smokey
44. Red River Valley
45. The Riddle Song (I Gave my Love a Cherry)
46. Shall We Gather At the River?
47. She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain
48. Sweet Betsey From Pike
49. Take Me Out to the Ball Game
50. There's a Hole in the Bucket
51. This Land is Your Land
52. This Little Light of Mine


53. She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain by Suzanne Beaky

54. The Old Chisolm Trail by Rosalyn Schanzer

55. Buffalo Girls by Bobette McCarthy (no image available)


56. John Langstaff's Frog Went A-Courtin' Illustrated by Feodor Rojankovsky

I had never heard of this song, but fell in love with it immediately. The illustrations in this version (there are many out there) are incredible. We LOVE this book and have recently added it to our home library.

57. Over in the Meadow by Ezra Jack Keats
