    One thought on “My Mountain Song”

    1. I enjoyed reading this book, mostly because of the pictures. The characters and setting took me back to my own summers in the mountains with a fiddle and a wood-burning stove.

    2. Brenda Gail is spending the summer with her great-grandparents, her cousin comes over every day to see her while she is staying. Brenda grand-pap makes up a song the last day she is there about things they have done that day. My mountain song is a book for 3rd graders and up. 3rd grade and down would really enjoy this story. Shutta Crum writes books for children and poetry for adults. She is also a storyteller, an energetic and humorous public speaker, and a librarian. Several of her articles a [...]

    3. In some families without a dad, granddad serves as the primary loving father figure, so I’ve included My Mountain Song in this post. This story captures a distinct, rural flavor as a child visits here grandparents’ farm. Brenda Gail is looking forward to her stay–no pesky little brother to trail her, no big one to boss her around. But life delivers surprises–in the form of her cousin Melvin–and spoils the little girl’s plans. He teases her. They fight and Brenda Gail ends up injuring [...]

    4. This book takes place in the rural South. My guess somewhere in the Appalachian mountains but it isn't specific. A young girl spends time with her Great Grandma and Grandpa (we don't usually hear a lot of stories which include great grandparents.)Great Grandpa Talks about his mountain song, and how Brenda Gail can come up with her own. During the story she comes up with the elements of her song, but at the end I was hoping that they would share her songabout her dog, chickens, the rain.but It di [...]

    5. This would be a good book to use when talking about different dialects as well as different traditions. The characters in this story are from the Kentucky mountains and Crum has written the dialogue accordingly. She also talking about the characters having their own songs about their lives and that could be a great lead into a writing assignment where the students write a song about their lives.

    6. Music is often a way that many people express themselves. This is a great story about a boy that must find his "mountain song" of memories.

    7. My Mountain Song encourages expression through music. This would be a great book to read before doing a student about music and composers.
