Ukulele Books

Ukulele Books? What is that? Well, lets head over to Wikipedia first to find out what an Ukulele is before we begin with this post.
"The ukulele originated in the 19th century as a Hawaiian interpretation of small guitar-like instruments brought to the islands by the Portuguese."

We spotted the Ukulele books on the Book Patrol blog.

"I love to make books and I love to play the ukulele. Can I put these two loves together? Can I make a book out of a uke?" After Donna and I made the first one, I thought, "How many more can we make? Each one will have to represent a different book structure, format or concept and each will still have to play...." Well, to date Peter and Donna Thomas have made over 20 ukulele books.
