Morning Has Broken

Cat Stevens made it popular, but Eleanor Farjeon wrote Morning Has Broken. There’s something so engaging about singing lyrics to a song while turning pages of a picture book. Sing a cappella or try it with the video below, which shows a 1976 live recording of the song.  I picked this one because of the great disco stage and obvious 70s hairstyles, which sort of links to social studies, but you can find several versions to suit your fancy.  You may want to run just the audio, or read aloud, the first time around to appreciate Tim Ladwig’s illustrations.
