Even after the textbooks True Stories Behind the Songs and More True Stories Behind the Songs were published, I continued to write new stories for my students. I’ve shared some of those stories on this site and will continue to add stories from time to time. They are downloadable as a Word document and as a pdf. Permission is granted to reproduce for classroom use.
