Based on the classic folk song made famous by a beloved trio of children's entertainers, this picture book is best sung aloud! "Skinnamarink" is a timeless anthem of love and inclusion.

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.
SHARON HAMPSON, the late LOIS LILIENSTEIN (d. 2015) and BRAM MORRISON are some of Canada's most famous children's performers, with fans across North America and around the world. The trio, known simply as Sharon, Lois and Bram, formed in Toronto in 1978 and went on to create two top-rated children's television shows, The Elephant Show ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timeless Appeal The Skinnamarink song is a lovely tune that I warmly remember from my childhood, and this book is a charming way to share it with a new generation. The illustrations are well-suited to the book and include diverse groups of people, reflecting the inclusive world in which we live. I think it's a timely book, as you can never have too much love in the world! Thank you to Netgalley and Penguin Random House Canada for an e-book in exchange for an honest review. I'll certainly be purchasing a print copy of this beautiful book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will Be The Best Book In The World. Hi I am Bobby Zacharko, Sharon, Lois & Bram are the true music for families. Lots of joy, smiles, tears and laughter. Always remembering the good times. The lyrics to the famous Skinnamarink song originally were written in 1910. The song was also featured on a Vaudeville show. It was also famously song by Jimmy Durante. Then Sharon, Lois & Bram then kept SKINNAMARINK alive for 40 years and more. Skinnamarink would not be a part of Sharon, Lois & Bram if it was not for Lois who had a cousin in Chicago who told her about that song. Thank you to them both. Thank you to Sharon's daughter Randi for writing these beautiful perfect extended lyrics to Skinnamrink. This Skinnamarink Book will keep Skinnamarink alive for ever!! Let this Book ne sold around the world. This song is forever!! Thank you Chapters Indigo for all the great things you do for families around the world. Skinnamarink I Love You!!
