Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
Miss Jackie is at it, again. With assistance from another experienced educator, this veteran teacher and entertainer has assembled more than 700 songs, chants, fingerplays, and poems primarily for toddlers and preschoolers. Just about every children's rhyme or song you have ever heard is in here. They are organized alphabetically and each notes a theme connection to the curriculum such as cleanup, self-esteem, or parts of the body. To determine what are chants, songs, or fingerplays, one must check the category index. It would have been helpful to new teachers to have this noted on the individual entries. Additional indices include a first-line index, a theme connections index such as animals, cooking, and counting, and the category index. Two CDs are included with fifty songs sung by both males and females. The songs are sung in alphabetical order on the CDs but do not correspond to the list in the category index. It would have been helpful to have a list of what songs are on what CD, preferably printed on the CD.
