Once Upon A Tune: Songs About Stories & Literacy

Once Upon A Tune: Songs About Stories & Literacy
Liz Buchanan
CD or Album Download with  Lyrics

This collection is a delightful mix of songs with an early literacy focus. Best for ages 3-7, and especially great for Pre-K through First Grade, this album includes songs about classic children’s tales, including a trio of songs about characters in threes: The Three Bears, Three Billy Goats Gruff and Three Little Kittens. The Three Little Pigs are featured on Liz’s earlier CD, “Singing All the Way Home.”


“Once Upon a Tune” also features Liz’s story-song about color mixing, “What Color Will You Be?” What happens when Mrs. Purple encounters Mr. Blue, who’s thinking fondly of Miss Red?  Additional songs help with vowel and consonant learning and provide engaging finger plays.
