Dem Bones


Colourful torn paper collages bring to life this classic African American spiritual. The frolicking skeletons will captivate children and adults while they sing along with this well-known, catchy song. A colourful skeleton band sings a song connecting the bones and teaching interesting bone facts. Originally a song about resurrection, Dem Bones was probably first sung in church and at revival meetings as long as two hundred years ago. As with most spirituals, there is an African music influence in the song’s repetitive structure and humor. Passed on by word of mouth for generations, the song has many versions. It's the perfect introduction to the human body, rhyme, and language — in a style at once classic and diverse. A paperback edition of the acclaimed hardcover, reaching a wider audience and generating new sales.
 
Now in paperback, an exuberant rendition of a traditional African American spiritual paired with interesting bone facts and dynamic paper collage illustrations.
