Sing-alongs for Young Children

Diane is an experienced leader of sing-alongs for little ones, delighting them with fun songs, finger-plays, and the chance to bounce to the music. She brings her guitar, her wonderful way with a song, and her friend Lucinda "Twinkletoes" MacGillicuddy, a dancing doll who never fails to fascinate everyone in attendance.

Diane does sing-alongs twice a month, on the first and third Saturdays, at First Parish UU Church in Arlington Center (right next to the library). The show lasts 30 minutes and is suitable for kiddos newborn to about age four. Admission is just $1 per person.

We enjoy such age-old favorites as:

Sing-along songs

- If You're Happy and You Know It
- The Wheels on the Bus
- Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes
- Where Is Thumbkin?
- The Eensy Weensy Spider
- Pop Goes the Weasel
- Do you Know the Muffin Man?
- Did You Ever See a Lassie?
- Old McDonald
- Working on the Railroad
- Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Diane always does I'm a Little Teapot and her upated version, I'm a Little Microwave. She also sings her own composition, The Bee Song. This call-and-response masterpiece has everything a toddler could want in a song -- joy, tears, drama, pathos, and the triumphant application of a band-aid.

For a dozen years Diane led weekly or monthly sing-alongs at libraries in Arlington, Reading, and neighboring towns. For six years she ran her own sing-along, renting space at the Calvary Church in Arlington.

Diane's Toddler Songs CD is a big hit among the young. You can buy one at the sing-along, or download through CD Baby, Amazon, iTunes, and other outlets. Diane is available to lead sing-alongs at libraries or other venues. Her fees are very reasonable.
