Description:

Representing the best of our American heritage, this collection of uplifting, meditative, and feet-stomping folksongs is a gift children of all ages will never forget—the melodies are so strong they are sure to last a lifetime!

These folksongs, handpicked by renowned conductor and composer Alice Parker, are tunes every child should know because they create a solid foundation for future music learning. Every folksong in this book has passed the test of time.

In a world where time-honored favorites are all too often rejected for the latest fad, these songs bridge the generations.

These songs are easy to learn and wonderful to share. Children naturally will want to sing along as soon as a parent, teacher, or sibling takes the lead.

We owe it to our children, our parents, and ourselves to preserve this rich musical heritage—be it at home, in a classroom, or around a campfire!

Alice Parker, founder of the group Melodious Accord, is a highly regarded composer, conductor, and lecturer in the field of choral folksongs, hymns, and spirituals.

James Heiks is Associate Professor of Music at Goshen College in Goshen, Indiana. He was previously Director of Choral Music at Appleton (Wisconsin) North High School.
