WOODY'S 20 GROW BIG SONGS by Woody Guthrie


by Woody Guthrie & Marjorie Mazia Guthrie & illustrated by Woody Guthrie

Pub Date: May 30th, 1992
ISBN: 0-06-020282-3
Publisher: HarperCollins

With easy, singable tunes, lots of repetitive verses with real child appeal, and the hallowed folk singer's own lively, freely rendered sketches, this replication of an unpublished book that the Guthries put together in 1948 for their children will be especially valuable to parents and in day-care centers. The songs themselves were recorded earlier and may be familiar; happily, this format should bring them a wider audience. Also available with a cassette recording by son Arlo. (Nonfiction. 0-6)
