Based on the classic folk song made famous by a beloved trio of children''s entertainers, this board book is best sung aloud! "Skinnamarink" is a timeless anthem of love and inclusion.
What does "skinnamarink" mean? You may not find its definition in a dictionary, but the meaning is clear to the generations of children who sang along: friendship, happiness, sharing, community and, ultimately, love. This song has been sung in weddings and in classrooms. It can be fun and silly -- especially with the accompanying actions! And it has a way of bringing people together.
Through Qin Leng''s wonderfully imaginative illustrations, this delightful picture book tells the story of a community coming together. Young and old, from little mice to a big elephant, people and animals gather into a spontaneous parade as they follow the sound of music.
Sharon, Lois and Bram formed as a trio of children''s entertainers in Toronto in 1978 and went on to create two top-rated children''s television shows, most notably The Elephant Show, and to release 21 full-length albums (many of which reached gold, platinum, double platinum and triple platinum). In 2018, Sharon and Bram celebrated their 40th anniversary and they continue to entertain children and share their message of love.
