Children's Book "The Library Book"

"I'm going down to the Library,

by Michael Mark & Tom Chapin

ADULT CD "Threads"

"Build a story line by line.
Build a song rhyme on rhyme.
Build a life on the sands of time.
Build a dream with me."

That is how you build an album as well.
This is my 25th recording, and, as always,
it took a "leap of faith and some follow through."

Included are 11 brand new songs, one of my favorite Harry Chapin songs, plus an anthem written by my daughters, The Chapin Sisters.

Adult CD


Lots of new original songs,
one reinterpreted song,
a cover of a folk classic,
and a favorite Pete Seeger song
(featuring The Chapin Sisters).

The Backwards Birthday Party

by Tom Chapin and John Forster
Illustrated by Chuck GroeninkFor Ages 4 - 8

Published by Simon and Schuster
"What if birthdays were backward?.... A bouncing, jovial rhyme describes the reversed sequencing.... Colorful, appealing illustrations portray the boy and his animal friends with just the right amount of detail as they eat cake first thing (hurray!) and the boy wraps presents and hands them out to each animal...all is smooth and silly here. Youngsters will giggle along with this lighthearted selection as they relish all the important moments that birthdays bring and learn about sequencing and time in an enjoyable way. A nice selection for any collection and, of course, an excellent birthday present."
Kirkus Reviews, November 2014

Someone's Sleepy
by Deborah Lee Rose

In this tender rhyming picture book, a mother readies her child for bed. Their nighttime ritual includes bathtime, brushing teeth, hugs, and a storybook read aloud. Once tucked under the covers with stuffed animals, the child is lulled to sleep, watched over by her night-light and puppy friend. This is a wonderful bedtime story with sweet text by Deborah Lee Rose, complemented by the warm illustrations of Dan Andreasen.
