First Steps in Music
Read! Listen! Sing along!
Enjoy this hilarious adventure of a husband who tries to help his sick wife feel better by granting her wish to dine on crabfish. This picture book is one in a series based on beloved children’s folksongs, part of John M. Feierabend’s lifelong goal to identify and preserve the best music of our heritage for future generations.
A classic folktale, The Crabfish has inspired laughs from children and adults alike for more than 600 years. Now adapted by John M. Feierabend and beautifully illustrated by Vincent Nguyen, The Crabfish is sure to engage another generation with story and song.
This song may be downloaded in an audio form at no cost (see below). The song is recorded twice: the first time, the tale is completely sung, while the second time, everyone is invited to sing along on the chorus.
A new twist on a timeless story, this book will certainly become a favorite of today’s children—another wonderful chapter in the continuing legacy of these delightful, classic songtales.
John M. Feierabend has spent decades compiling songs and rhymes from the memories of the American people in the hopes that these treasures will be preserved for future generations. Dr. Feierabend is a national leader in the field of early childhood education and currently serves as a professor and chair of the Music Education Department at The Hartt School of the University of Hartford.
Vincent Nguyen is a native of Houston, Texas, where he began his artistic pursuits drawing superheroes and dinosaurs. He received his BFA in illustration from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. When Vincent is not illustrating picture books, he is working on animated feature films, most recently Robots. He now lives and works in the New York City area and continues to draw superheroes and dinosaurs.
