good for what it is but misleading title June 15 2011
By pmascs - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The main content of this book is songs (CD included) written by the author and groups of kids he has worked with. the songs are great, and there is a short description of how they came up with each song at the top of each page. But, as I was looking for a bit more substance that fit the title description, i was disappointed that there are just a couple pages at that back of the book that talk about the different steps to writing songs, tho this content is good too, but short. I think it is good for what it is, but felt a little misguided by the title, as i was expecting more of the substance of the book to expound on the steps of song-writing in a way that would "guide" and allow kids to participate/practice their own process of song-writing along the way.

I like the condition of this book. I learned a little by buying a children's book and got little out of it. However the music on the CD was cut.

This book contains songs that my son has played and sung from an early age! It has helped him to start the day off on the right foot with a smile on his face.

Kids will love this book Nov. 4 2008
By Armchair Interviews - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book has numerous illustrators: Eve Aldridge, Shino Arihara, Bob Barner, Tatjana, Mai-Wyss, Jenny Mattheson, Frank Morrison and Marissa Moss.

Steve Seskin is a songwriter with seven number-one hits to his credit. He always wanted to help youngsters write the songs of their hearts and with Sing My Song, he works with them in the creative process that will produce completed songs. Seskin is the author of Don't Laugh At Me and A Chance to Shine. Tim McGraw recorded Seskin's song, "Grown Men Don't Cry."

Seskin's book, Sing My Song is a children's how-to for writing a song. He helps children create the verses, chorus and the bridge, work with sounds, rhyme and various words that create the picture of the story. The accompanying CD has songs from the book and some musical tracks to give kids the `hands on' help in writing lyrics.

Kids will like the hands on, interactive quality Sing My Song. It's perfect for those stay-at-home days. The illustrations are beautiful and inviting. They portray kids of all races which is particularly attractive to me as many of my grandchildren are kids of color.

Armchair Interviews says: A good book for the home or school.
