The First Thanksgiving

Another children’s musical celebration of one of our country’s most beloved holidays, this “true story of the first thanksgiving” evokes the indigenous people with the introduction of a beautiful flute/percussion motif. The Native Americans (Bright Squirrel et al) befriend the pilgrims and assist them in farming the land, while inventive songs – “Picture Talk” and the hymn-inspired “A Pilgrim Thank You Song” and “Come, Ye Thankful People” – transport the listener to that time in history when our annual November tradition was established. Another Ruth Roberts song favorite, “Over the River and through the Woods” [see also THE EAGLE AND THE TURKEY], sets new lyrics set to the familiar tune about Grandma’s house we’ve all loved for generations.

 

Teacher's Book is $19.95.  Performance/Accompaniment CD is $13.95.

Student book 10/pack is $35.00.

 

Grades K-6; parts for many students, 20 minutes in duration – for classroom or stage presentation
