First Steps in Music
Circle games are one of the principal joys of childhood, especially when played with a group of friends outdoors. From “The Farmer in the Dell” to “London Bridge,” these games encourage social skills, cognitive development, creativity, language development, motor skills, and, of course music skills. Learning has never been so much fun!
Because they are easy to learn and fun to play, Circle Games are a wonderful way to engage children, while at the same time planting seeds of musical sensitivity and imagination. This special book, for the first time, collects the most cherished of these songs and games (some in danger of being lost or forgotten), enabling your family to carry on the tradition of laughter and learning that Circle Games have inspired for generations!
