Getting to Know You!: Rodgers and Hammerstein Favorites Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No two people have done more for the American musical than Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. Now, in Getting to Know You!, sixteen of the most popular and treasured songs from this remarkable pair have been gathered together for the first time in an illustrated picture book.

With watercolors by renowned illustrator Rosemary Wells, Getting to Know You! captures the simple joy, the happy celebration, and the sly humor that are at the heart of these timeless lyrics.

Included at the back of the book are the complete lyrics to each of the sixteen songs, along with the melody lines, so children and parents can read, recite, and sing along for hours of happy talks and dozens of beautiful mornings.

About the Author

Richard Rodgers (composer 1902-1979) and Oscar Hammerstein II (librettist/lyricist, 1895-1960) joined forces in 1943 to create the most successful partnership in American musical theater. Their first musical, Oklahoma!, was also the first of a new genre, the musical play, blending Rodgers' sophisticated style of musical comedy with Hammerstein's innovations in opera. Oklahoma! was followed by Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I, and The Sound of Music, among others. Collectively the Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals earned thirty-four Tony Awards, fifteen Academy Awards, two Pulitzer Prizes, two Grammy Awards, and an Emmy Award.
