Family Fun in Kyoto, Japan

My family just returned from a trip to Japan and I wanted to share some images from our time there. We had many incredible impressions, and in particular were touched by the special affection that is given to children, and also the care that is shown toward animals, plant life, art and architecture. We stayed […]

Summer Fun

Hi Everyone! It’s been so much fun this summer with classes and shows at libraries and camps, and I’ve been making lots of new friends! With PlayMove&Sing Classes, and my Sukey Molloy & Friends shows, we’ve all had fun playing and singing with pails, shovels, felt boards, scarves, bells, balls, stix, spoons, coloring pages, gym […]

Sunny’s Song – Felt Art & Song

Hi Again! When writing Sunny’s Song (on my I Am Happy album) I especially wanted Sunny to have a song all her own, just like Tick Tock. Animating Sunny’s Song on the upcoming Sukey’s Circle! Vol. 4 DVD, for me, will be a very special treat. In the song, Sunny puts on her hat and […]

Five Little Ducks – Felt Art & Song

Hi! This third post is about one of my favorite children’s songs, Five Little Ducks. The song lends itself well to felt art/play, and you can include as many ducks as you can make! It’s a great activity for counting, adding, and subtracting, and can be sung all together while using individual storyboards. Hiding individual […]

Colors of the Rainbow – Felt Art & Song

  Hi! Here’s my second post on Creating Felt Art & Song! Colors of the Rainbow (from my I Like to Sing album), features lyrics about the many different colors we see in the rainbow, the many shapes all around us, and the many numbers in the universe beginning with one through ten. I like […]

Up in the Tree – Song & Felt Art

Hi Everyone! I’d like to share a series of blog posts with you about creating felt art with young children! I love creating children’s music, and the accompanying felt art images, characters, and storyboards I use in making animations for my Sukey’s Circle! DVDs. I thought you’d like to join in. In the music and […]

The Sun Shines

Hi Everyone! I’m excited about my new single, The Sun Shines. I released it just last month, and am offering it as a free download. Just click on the link below, and have the song forever! I wrote The Sun Shines while walking along the Hudson River. It’s a cheery song about the special warmth […]

Introducing Errol Robinson…

Upon remembering Nona, I felt it would make her very happy for me to introduce you to her son, Errol Robinson. Errol is like an older brother to me, and among other talents, he has made a career as a performing vocal artist. Like Nona, Errol is Panamanian born, and in his career, he has […]

Remembering Nona

I’d like to share a very special person with you who has been a profound part of my life – Claricia Iona Cummings. Miss Cummings, endearingly referred to as Nona, joined my family from Panama when I was just five days old. At the time, we lived in Springfield, Massachusetts. Nona has been like a […]

Tick Tock Goes to Panama

I am eager to share this wonderful coincidence with you. My neighbor and client, Danny Carragher, saw one of my Sukey’s Circle mini shows while vacationing in Panama, and his kids were thrilled to see Tick Tock in the archipelago. One never knows where Tick Tock might show up. Read on!   Dear Sukey, So […]
