Psalty the Singing Songbook is the anthropomorphic "big blue book" featured in the children's music Kids' Praise! albums. Psalty was created by Debby Kerner & Ernie Rettino, who also plays the characters of Psalty and Psaltina (and many others) on their album appearances. He and the Kids' Praise! Kids travel around the world, singing and telling children about Jesus. Psalty has a Wife (Psaltina, played by Ernie's wife Debby Kerner Rettino), triplets (Harmony, Melody, and Rhythm), and a dog who always hits the wrong notes (Blooper)! Other characters Psalty runs into are the fame-seeking Charity Churchmouse, the singing firefly Farley McFirefly, and of course the swindling villain, Risky Rat. There are ten Kids' Praise! albums, each one having a different life lesson from God's Word.

One of Psalty's favorite sayings is, "Praise the Lord!" There haven't been too many appearances of Psalty since the early 1990s, but on a 1995 TBN episode of Colby's Clubhouse, Psalty makes a guest appearance in an episode that could be considered a "passing of the torch", since Psalty had been the most visible of the characters.
Psalty is a songbook...not just any songbook, he's a KIDS songbook. He travels all around the world telling kids about how much God loves them!
What's so special about Psalty? Mostly that he loves Jesus with all his heart, but also because he likes to sing and dance and have fun learning about the Lord. And when you're around him you just want to praise the Lord with him!
All His Pals
The yellow book is Psalty's beautiful wife,PSALTINA. She's a book of poetry. Together they have 3 booklets: Melody, Harmony, and Rhythm.
MELODY she's pink and loves to sing the melody...la la la,
HARMONY she's green and loves to sing the harmony part...and also loves to be the center of attention.
RHYTHM is orange and loves to play the drums and go skateboarding...though not at the same time
WHERE DO THEY LIVE?
They all live together in a little house in Happyville. Psalty also has a worship workshop there. In the winter he goes to his Winter Worship Workshop in the mountains. Kids come from miles around to help Psalty & his family decorate the workshop.
CHARITY CHURCHMOUSE is one of their best friends.Charity is a gospel singing star who learned the lesson that in order to be a star in God's Kingdom you must first learn to be a servant of all.
FARLEY McFIREFLY became their friend when he lighted their way during a nighttime camping adventure. Farley is handicapped. He only has one wing, but he can glow...and when he glows he gives the glory all to God. "I'm not disabled...With the Lord I'm more than able!"
BLOOPER is Psalty's dog. He has perfect pitch and likes to sing the "Howl-lelujah Chorus". But being a "regular" dog, he's always getting into trouble, mostly digging holes in Psaltina's rose garden.
