    This is an amazing collection of folk songs collected by Dan ZaneEach one has a little explanation the back story of either how he came to know the song or what history he has about the song and sometimes who was famous for singing the songThere are songs I have sung my whole life and never thought about and other songs that are uite new to me What is interseting is that Dan gave a lot of thought about what songs to include and exclude If he found out a song was originally written for Mistral Shows he would leave them out If he found that the song had racial slurs even slurs that are only slurs in one country he would leave it outThe book is organized in groups such as work songs and cowboy songs and sea shanties and front porch songs The book appears to be intended to teach with which is good because we all need to keep learning folk songs or they will die outRecommended for schools and libraries Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review

    The book's description says it all but Dan Zanes' book is much than music I first fell in love with Zanes and his approach about fifteen years ago This book illustrated by his brother in law combines music history and a lot of Zanes into a music book that will not only entertain but educate at the same time Young students learning about music in school will find his book similar to their classes Teachers are now teaching stories behind the song in terms of history cultural events and social reasons that helped create the song There are several things that make this book stand out among other music books Zanes includes not only the piano but guitar chords and an open invitation to create their own musical instruments Music comes from within and it doesn't always rely on playing the right note or sounding like others In each written section that places the music in its time period and social history Zanes also includes recommendations on books and other music to further explore the period Creating connections between artists and mediums helps encourage the noncompetitive spirit that is so needed in the arts This is a fantastic book for anyone Thank you NetGalley and uarto Publishing Group Voyager Press for the opportunity to read an advance reader copy

    I am a board certified music therapist and have spent the majority of my career working in pediatrics Like most music therapists I am always on the look out for songs that can be easily adaptable for music therapy sessions The first song that I fell in love with by Dan Zanes was his original song “Jump Up” My toddler absolutely loves it and I immediately saw the therapeutic potential in it This song and many of the songs included in this song book share this same therapeutic potential There are songs from musical traditions and cultures around the world ranging from simple call and response songs to songs with easily adaptable lyrics and engaging melodies Not only is this book absolutely beautifully designed and illustrated it contains the notation for each song as well as cultural contexts and considerations— some even have ideas on how to facilitate the songs Though Dan Zanes targets music educators in his introduction this book is eually as relevant for music therapists and it doesn’t hurt that his wife who also worked on this book happens to be a music therapist and undoubtedly brought her therapeutic perspective to this collection I think this book is a wonderful addition to any music therapist’s library and another bonus is that there is a Spotify playlist so you can listen to the music as well I would highly recommend this book

    This Book is My New Best FriendI opened Dan Zanes' House Party optimistically thinking I'd just just skim through it and get to know it a bit You know shake it's hand and see if I felt any spark ignite between us Well several hours later I came back up for air having gotten sucked right in This book and I are now in a committed relationship I will be bringing it with me everywhere and introducing it to family and friends too Dan Zanes does a beautiful job presenting a collection of old songs in a way that lets you know they are far from worn out Each and every song has a thoughtful history attached to it along with suggestions for listening and reading resources that allow you to dive in deep if you feel the desire which you will In addition the illustrations of Donald Saaf are whimsical and so perfectly fit the folk culture of this musical treasury Claudia Eliaza provides clear musical transcriptions that are easy to read and complete with chords In summary in just a few hours this book has already been a great addition to my personal life and I look forward to using it as a tool and resource for my professional life as a music educatormusic therapist It will reside right next to my well worn copy of Rise Up Singing

    This book is such a treasure As a music educator and music therapist the content is invaluable and I've never come across anything else like it It's like looking into the notebook someone who has spent a lifetime studying roots music just like he has Can't recommend highly enough
