You can turn FOLLOW THE DRINKING GOURD by Jeanette Winter into a REAL MUSICTALE Just print the music in the PDF files at the links below. Then trim the paper around the music and glue in your book on the appropriate pags to read along with the music as well as the text..

I use a glue stick of "removable glue" that allows you to easily remove the music later without serioualy damaging the book.
