Reading to children provides an opportunity to show them how interesting books are. It is important to read quality literature so they develop sensitivites for the expressive potential in wonder-full stories.
It is important to read with the appropriate expression to bring these stories ot life. SongTales are used for the same purposes. Due to the many words in a SongTale, these songs are sung for young children, not by young children. These songs should be excellent examples of music literature and should be sung with the appropriate expressiveness. Not only will SongTales help develop listening skills, but they can provide an opportunity for children to hear the expressiveness tht music should include.
This book contains 43 SongTales sure to delight your students. Compiled by John M. Feierabend.
