The national summer reading theme for 2011 is ďOne World, Many Stories.Ē In keeping with that, I am offering the title song for my upcoming summer concert. It will feature rhythm instruments made from found items around the world. Take a walk with your children, and see what you can find! Stones, seeds, small sticks, and for some of us, pine cones, all make wonderful sounds! Using your imagination (and theirs!), Iíll bet you can come up with some pretty clever ideas! Then play along with this song. Over the next couple of months Iíll be sharing my ideas for homemade instruments from nature, and I would love to share any you come up with as well. Send me a photo or description, and Iíll post it. Letís make some music!
 

Sticks and Stones, Seeds and Bones

 

Sticks and Stones, Seeds and Bones

Everything has a little rhythm of  its own

Sticks and Stones, Seeds and Bones

Everything has a little rhythm

 

Take a look around, look down on the ground

And listen for the music waiting to be found

Pick it up, shake it up, break it up and make it up

Listen to the rhythm, listen to the sound
