Baseball Toad Plays Ukelele
Princess Diamond's real-life brother has agreed help me record a ukulele version of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" to use as a soundtrack for a Princess Diamond and the Baseball Toad book trailer. He's also going to try to play his ukulele wearing the Toad mask we used for the photos in the book.

I'm going to use my daughter's iPad2 as a video camera--hope that works! Then I think I can transfer it to my laptop using PhotoStream.

Once I get the audio-visual results edited on GarageBand and iMovie I will add them here, and also on either YouTube or Vimeo. I checked online, and only the commonly-known lyrics ("buy me some peanuts and CrackerJacks," etc.) are copyrighted. The original music to the song is in the public domain, so I don't have to get any permissions (phew).

The great thing about these Apple tools--GarageBand, iMovie, iPhoto, iBooks Author, etc. is that they all work together.
