Treasure Chest Thursday - Sing Children Sing Song Book


Treasure Chest Thursday - "Sing Children Sing" Song Book






From storage... Nancy and I each have one of these, from Sunday School at Star Methodist Church, north of Coon Rapids, Iowa.

"Sing Children Sing" by Edith Lovell Thomas; New York City, July, 1939 (when I was born!)

Here is the inside cover, of mine! "Billy Smith"
[It says on left: To The Poets and Musicians who Pitched these Songs for Children's Voices]


I certainly remember using these as a youngster, in the 1940s.

Here was one of the more popular songs - All Things Bright

"All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful: The Lord God made them all.





Families are Forever!  ;-)

  2. They're lovely things to have - memories of songs from childhood are so strong aren't they?

  3. I really enjoyed this posting. I'm teaching a HISTORY OF THE BOOK course next fall and this is a great example. The bookplate in the front is wonderful and I even see a little marginalia on one of the pages you selected to scan. This is really a treasure!
