Song of the Week: Abiyoyo, by Pete Seeger
Lucia had heard me play Pete Seeger's Abiyoyo before, and I think I even got the book out of the library for her, but it wasn't until her grandpa showed her a Youtube video of a young Pete Seeger peforming the story-song that it had sticking power for her. It's got a boy playing the ukulele, a father with a magic wand that goes "Zoop!" and a giant with slobbery teeth (because he never brushed them). Walter Minkel, this Song of the Week is dedicated to you. We'll never tell you and your ukulele to "git!"
P.S. S&S got an 8 out of 10 rating in the Children and Family Music section of Blogged.com. Thanks!
