Music is said to be the universal language, and it certainly brings the generations together. What's your favorite tune to sing with grandchildren? Share a title or two, and tell us why.
"I Love You a Bushel and a Peck"
- When my first grandson was born I would sing the tune softly in his ear. Now we shout it out even when we're out on the playground. You should see some of the looks we get (:-)

My theme song
- This isn't really a traditional song, but the song I last sang with my grandson was "Leavin' On A Jet Plane" as we headed to the airport for me to return home. Another one, that I consider my grandson's song, is "Sweet Baby James" by James Taylor, substituting Sweet Brayden James for the lyrics as that's my grandson's name. I made him a CD of it the first week he was born.

"I've Been Working on the Railroad"
- This is a song we would sing on family trips when I was a young girl. I sang it to my children, and now I'm singing it to my grands.
Grandchildren Sing Alongs
- "Old Top Of Old Smoky," "Row, Row Your Boat," "Jesus Loves Me," "If I Had A Hammer"-- these are just a few of our favorites to sing.

Grand Sing Along
- Thanks for reminding me of an old favorite. I learned Red River Valley from my first piano book.
