DALLAS, TX – November 2, 2017 – Barrett Cobb in her new bestseller, Walk Shepherdess, Walk has given a fresh look at this age-old classic nursery rhyme/folk song. Shepherdess Walk was one of many poems in Nursery Rhymes of London Town, written by Eleanor Farjeon in 1916. In 1919, Eleanor composed and added music to her world-famous nursery rhyme.
When Barrett Cobb was a child, her mother taught her this folk song. Barrett has taken this beautiful melody and arranged it for voice, flute, and piano. Her performance of this arrangement can be heard and downloaded from the website WalkShepherdessWalk.com.
In addition to singing this song, Barrett has created beautiful paintings–which correspond to all of the phrases of the song–so readers can follow along visually with the musical performance. This book can also be used as a tool in assisting children who are learning to read.
Barrett describes the story: “Join the Shepherdess and her young friend for a walk through the countryside in search of three special sheep. At the end of the day, the true significance of their quest is revealed.”
“…Barrett Cobb is a painter, singer, flutist, and now a visual storyteller turning a childhood folk song into an enchanting life lesson for everyone.” ~ Teri Davis, BestsellersWorld.com.
