From “The Wheels on the Bus” to “I’m a Little Teapot,” these classic songs combine movement and music to create a high-energy, fun experience for children. At the same time, children learn coordination skills and the musical concepts of form and expression.
Easy to learn and fun to sing, fingerplays and action songs are a wonderful way to engage children, while at the same time plant seeds of musical sensitivity and imagination. This special book, for the first time, collects the most cherished of these songs (some in danger of being lost or forgotten), enabling your family to carry on the tradition of laughter and learning that fingerplays and action songs have inspired for generations!
John M. Feierabend, PhD, has spent decades compiling songs and rhymes from the memories of the American people in hopes that these treasures will be preserved for future generations. He is a leading authority on child development in music and movement and served as Professor and Chair of the Music Education Department of the Hartt School of the University of Hartford.
