My grandson is seven years old. When we take short trips to the lake, about 1 1/2 hours away, we often listen to music. But there’s a big discussion about music styles. Daddy likes country. My Darling Husband (DH) has an eclectic taste, though, so we often pull up Pandora or Spotify and try something different.
We have sung along with the three tenors as they sing opera.
We’ve listened to popular Broadway songs. DH was singing “Getting to know you, getting to know all about you,” a memorable line from a song in The KING AND I musical.
By far, though, the most popular genre for the grandkids is cowboy music. Especially yodeling. They LOVE to listen to yodeling like this video. Isn’t this kid amazing?

So, my grandson got in trouble at school this week.
He made poor choices.
He yodeled in class!
His overall behavior, though, was nicely balanced by two positive points for going to the library. That’s my boy!
Of course, my thoughts immediately went to books. Is there a good story that has yodeling as a key part of it?
Not that I know of.
I wish there was one, though. Would you buy a book about yodeling for your school?
