Description:

Through engaging children using Music Play 2, adults may build relationships with newborn and young children, additional family members, and other adults as they joyfully make music together; affirm and nurture newborn and young children’s innate capacities for expressive musicking and movement; and honor and extend young children’s expressed musical curiosities, ideas, and audeas (musical thoughts and ideas), helping them realize that their musical identities are worth sharing, developing, and preserving.

This book had me interested from the table of contents onward. The lessons are detailed and ready to use in the classroom. I love that there are tonal and rhythmic patterns to go with each song or chant. This is truly a resource that will delight children and teachers as it is easy to use, appropriate for young children, and pedagogically sound. When I finished, I was ready to jump back into teaching early childhood music. Fantastic!
