Jackie Silberg was a champion for children who devoted her life to early childhood education. She was a warm, engaging person who loved to share music with those around her. She helped even reluctant students to feel comfortable in singing and making music. As the author of 15 award-winning books, she was thrilled to learn that her books were translated into many languages and shared with children all over the world. Jackie was a perpetual learner who was always open to new ideas and new approaches to sharing joy through music. She will be missed.
