I guess so...lol.  My father and Mom2 sent the book "Puff the Magic
Dragon" to my daughter for her birthday.  It has a cd in there with
Peter Yarrow singing Puff as well as a couple of other songs - with HIS
daughter singing with him!!  And another generation has fallen in love
with a dragon <sigh>.  Of course, I had to explain why I was crying when
the song was playing - my Dad used to sing it to me every night to help
me fall asleep, and I always thought it sad that Jackie went away and
Puff was left alone - the book has a little girl peeping out at the
end...maybe Jacqueline, who knows....but even at a young age, I thought
it sad that people grew up and left those friends of childhood behind.

So I guess I'm "corrupting" another generation...lol.  DH doesn't really
"get" the music that I listen to.  We find common ground in modern
praise and worship songs, song country music, and very rarely,
headbanging rock of the 80s....I'm ecclectic, he's just odd.

You still have The Giving Tree, Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the
Attic, and other Shel Silverstein books, and the Fedge books by Jeff
Comanor (my ex-BIL) who wrote songs with Silverstein.  For songs,
there's Pete Seeger and Arlo Guthrie.  Lots of fun!

Own The Giving Tree and WHere the SIdewalk Ends...don't have any
others...yet.  Dad is working on providing me with the original
recordings of the songs he used to sing me to sleep with, so eventually
the children will hear them all!!

How wonderful to start new traditions.  Your children will read those
books and sing those songs to theirs one day.

Never try to teach a pig to sing.  It's a waste of time and just annoys the
pig.
