Let the magic begin! Come to Dan Zanes’s House Party with Claudia Eliaza at Books are Magic on Nov. 10.

The children’s artist presents a collection of folk songs along with inspiration to start your own family band. In this new songbook, he has curated a rich selection of folk songs that comprise an essential musical cross-section of the American experience and its multicultural, immigrant underpinnings.

The selections include the standard songs we all know and love, along with folk classics. Each song is accompanied by a brief narrative on its historical context, followed by lyrics, notation, and chords.

It also includes informational sidebars throughout to give families the basics needed to pick up instruments and learn to more fully enjoy music as a family band. And in the back of the book, you’ll find chord charts for guitar, ukulele, banjo, and mandolin.

Dan Zanes’s House Party, Nov. 10 from 11 am to noon. Free. For all ages.

Books Are Magic (225 Smith St. at Butler Street in Brooklyn Heights; www.booksaremagic.net).
