From Guest,amy:

"I love to sing Child Ballads but find they just don't have the appropriate content for young children."

What do you mean by "young" children? (pre-school? pre-teen? somewhere in between?) If we knew, maybe we could be more help. A few years can make a big difference.

Also, check out The Kiddidles site here. Not many ballads, or very long songs at all, but you might get some ideas.

Do you have samples of your artwork online, somewhere? Maybe if we knew the style you like to work in, it might remind us of certain songs we liked as a kid...

(Just had a thought: Has the song "Boom, boom! Ain't it great to be crazy" been done as a book?)
