For many the word family conjures images of loving people and happy memories. For others, there is loss, pain or abusive relationships. Relationships can also vary from family to family. Keep this in mind when your group has a focus on family.
Singable Books with focus on family
One of my favorite books for intergenerational groups includes a CD recorded by Sweet Honey in the Rock. We Are One (affiliate link) by Ysaye M. Barnwell is beautifully illustrated by Brian Pinkney. If you haven’t heard this almost chant like song, check it out now.
Another fun intergenerational singable book is “Grandma’s Feather Bed”
