For generations, the songs and rhymes of American folk culture have delighted children, creating a "hushed wonder" at playtime. No fireworks, no crazy musical arrangements-just adult and child connecting with rhymes and music. These treasures once were passed from parent or grandparent to child, yet in recent years, with changes in technology and family structure, they have been in danger of being lost and forgotten.

A new series of books by John M. Feierabend brings back this music and poetry of our heritage! The Book of Wiggles and Tickles, The Book of Bounces, The Book of Lullabies, The Book of Simple Songs and Circles, and The Book of Tapping and Clapping are filled with the type of educational play parents and teachers crave! Rhymes, songs, and games bring our heritage to the newest generation by connecting them to a rich repertoire of folk music, while building their musical sensibilities that can help in their appreciation and understanding of music later in life! Plus, the books are easy to use, even for those with little musical background, and each collectible book is delightfully illustrated to enhance the activities.

Feierabend, an early childhood music specialist and professor at the Hartt School of Music, has spent decades compiling songs and rhymes that our parents and grandparents sang to us when we were children. In the same vein as classics like "This little piggy..." and "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush," the high-quality children's literature in these books has withstood the test of time, inspiring wonder, joy, and laughter in infants and toddlers for well over a hundred years.

It's all here: bounces, lullabies, songs for tickling and wiggling... music and rhymes from Feierabend's wonderful early-childhood books! Each CD combines the very best for each age group from all five books (on the facing page of this catalog)...more than 60 selections on each recording, complete with a fully-illustrated booklet with lyrics and any special directions. All songs are performed with only one voice, guitar, and string bass, following John M. Feierabend's philosophy that simplicity in musical accompaniment makes it easier for children to focus on the important melody of the song. With this collection, John M. Feierabend and Luann Saunders present a simple way make a connection between adult and child and develop a child's imagination, as well as enjoy a wonderful playtime together.
