MelodySoup YUMMY! Award: July 2012 - Ain't Gonna Paint No More!

July 2012

I Ain't Gonna Paint No More!
by Karen Beaumont, Illustrated by David Catrow

I love this book! Now just by looking at it, you might not think this is a book that could be used in a music class..... however, it is such a fun read and when I use this book with students I always sing it......I've included the melody I use, which I don't think is original and may have been intended for this book.... I don't know.... in any case, my students love this book so much that I look forward to adding instruments the next time I use it.

  1. I've never head that melody used with the book. Thanks for sharing it! I use it for steady beat in my class. I did a blog post here on it: http://www.kodalycorner.blogspot.com/2014/01/stories-and-songs_15.html
