UK Snow White Children's Album

The Snow White Children's Album features sheet music for all of the songs in the film (except Bluddle-Uddle-Um-Dum). The musical arrangements are simplified for kids and are accompanied by illustrations, most after original production sketches by Gustaf Tenggren. Contains 22 pages (not including covers).

Published in the United Kingdom by Chappell & Co, Ltd., licensed by Irving Berlin, Inc., and "By Permission Walt Disney – Mickey Mouse Ltd”. Dates from around the original release of the film, 1937-38.

A couple later printings licensed by Bourne Music Company, slightly higher prices. Late 40s and 50s.

The licensing fine print to the left of Dopey reads,"For the British Empire (except Canada, Australia, and New Zealand)."

"Some Day My Prince Will Come"

The illustration accompanying "I'm Wishing"

"Dig, Dig, Dig".


Character portraits at the book center.

"Whistle While You Work"

"The Silly Song"

"One Song"--If "Bluddle-Uddle-Um-Dum" (The Washing Song) had been included, this surely would have been the illustration to use with it.

"With a Smile and a Song"

Book conclusion.

The back cover from 1938 features an ad for Mickey Mouse/Silly Symphony songs. The late 40s edition includes a promo for the Pinocchio Children’s Album.

The Snow White Children's Album was also published in Italy.
