Siku's Song

From Hal Leonard

by Julia Jordan Kamanda/illustrated by Sita DeGiulio Das

Teaching Guide

Students will find a piece of themselves in Siku as she stands up for what she believes in and learns how to blend tradition with innovation. Build melodies using literacy-based activities, explore simple music notation, and manipulate materials to reinforce the concepts. Activities are aligned with national core curriculum standards and integrate music, language arts, social studies, and visual art.


Sing along with Siku, a young alpaca who breaks the rules in order to express herself by singing and humming the songs in her heart. This storybook helps children explore the musical element of melody. Siku's song is like the pan flute's voice, clear and strong. A companion CD includes a pan flute party jam track, an audiobook of the story, and easy-to-sing "In My Heart (There Is A Song)," written and performed by Julia Jordan Kamanda and her students. (Grades PreK-2)
