This charming Singalong Storybook tells the story of a young girl who travels by boat with her adorable animal friends to bring colorful seashells to nearby seashore vacationers.
The She Sells Sea Shells Singalong Storybook is based on the popular song from the Music Together curriculum and the award-winning “Music Together Family Favorites” CD. The lyrics of this song include the well-known tongue-twister, and the soothing and mysterious melody reflects a sense of wonder about the many colors, shapes, and sizes of shells left by the creatures of the sea.
This 32-page, beautifully illustrated picture book inspires singing, pre-literacy learning, and imaginative play between children and their favorite adults.
Available in both hardback and board-book formats, the book also includes fun activity suggestions designed to stimulate learning and music-making at home and in the classroom.

Music Together's newest product, She Sells Sea Shells, is a fantastic book to add to your young singers library. The pleasantly illustrated book uses soft colors and characters to properly convey this age old tongue twister. The activities in the back of the book help scaffold the young child's learning about colors, shells and the beach. In one added literacy component the author points the reader to go back through the book to look for specific "seaside friends." In another, the child is asked to discover all of the "S's" that can be found throughout the book. If this sounds like a good fit for you and your child, I'd recommend the Music Together Family Favorites CD that goes along with it.
As a music together family, I was excited to see this new visual format for the wonderful songs that accompany it. "She Sells Sea Shells" works well for both younger and older children. My 2-year-old was bright eyed with wonder looking at the pages filled with familiar looking scenes of shore life and beautiful and varied shells. My 6-year-old loved singing the tongue twister and having the words in front of him to help sort out the sounds. The activities inspire creativity for learning activites on the beach, teach classification, compare and contrast skills, and enjoyably strengthen reading abilities.
