Remarkable Farkle McBride - REMIX

I am dedicating this post to my friend Tami Boltz because she is one AMAZING music teacher and the information I am about to tell you absolutely made her week!!!

So there we were, a small group of music teachers from various schools in the district.  We were sharing our TMEA discoveries and finds.  One of the things that Tami showcased was the book "I've Got Two Dogs" by John Lithgow. In addition to sharing her love of reading/singing with her students, she was sharing with us about how this book offers an excellent opportunity for vocal exploration.

One thing led to another and before we knew it we were talking about the book "The Remarkable Farkle McBride"

Did you know that our favorite book "The Remarkable Farkle McBride" has a CD recording?

Well, it does!

It is called "Farkle and Friends" and it features a fully orchestrated retelling of the "The Remarkable Farkle McBride" narrated by John Lithgow.   It's marvelous and we love it!

 For a complete list of books by John Lithgow that are in my music library, please click HERE!

Plus, there is a new-ish book by John Lithgow that you can find here called "Never Play Music Right Next to the Zoo"
