If you are a new primary music leader and don’t have this book, GET IT!! It’s not published by the church but was originally intended to be.  Our Primary owns a copy – I’d suggest asking if there’s money in the budget to buy a copy that will stay with your calling.

I speak often of Sister Pat Graham (more posts about her HERE) and she’s one of the authors of this book. She also wrote 5 Primary songs in The Primary Songbook and was on the church committee that it together. She’s an amazing and talented woman when it comes to teaching music to children.

You can purchase this book here (Amazon affiliate link):

Free Digital Copy

Sister Graham informed me that A Children’s Songbook Companion will no longer be published.  So if you went to purchase one and there are no more available, don’t fret!  She asked if I would host it digitally here on Camille’s Primary Ideas so anyone can download it anytime.  And it’s all free!

  1. I have this book and love many of the ideas in it. The only problem I have is not being able to convert the tiny little pictures into full sized usable visual aids. Any suggestions? How do you do it?

  2. Hi Renee,

    I take a picture of the image in the book with my phone, then bring the picture into Photoshop, enlarge it to be the size I want, and clean up the image so only the black lines remain. It's pretty easy but I couldn't do it without Photoshop.


  3. I never knew about this book! I just bought Kindle version first for $2.99 to see if it is something I would use. I love it! Thank you for sharing this little treasure with me.
