Walk Shepherdess, Walk | Barrett Cobb

Summary of the Book:

When I was a child, my mother taught me the folk song “Walk Shepherdess, Walk.” I have taken this beautiful melody and arranged it for voice, flute, and piano. My performance of this arrangement can be heard on, and downloaded from the website Walkshepwherdesswalk.com. I have made paintings which correspond to all of the phrases of the song, so that the person reading the book can follow along visually with the musical performance. This can be used as a tool in learning to read. Here is how I described the story on the back cover of the book: “Join the Shepherdess and her young friend for a walk through the countryside in search of three special sheep. At the end of the day, the true significance of their quest is revealed.”
