Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Lullabies, simple songs, and rhymes! They are so much more than notes and rhythms—they have a way of bringing adults and children close together in warm, fun, loving ways. This rich collection of classic treasures that John Feieraband has gathered can easily nourish both children and their adults.” —Fred Rogers, creator and host, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood
Children's Literature - Carly Reagan
For the parent or caregiver working with infants, toddlers, and young children, the use of rhymes and songs can be an important tool in building relationships and maintaining a stimulating and comforting atmosphere. Though repetition of songs is important for the young child's brain development and ability to make connections, caregivers often find themselves tired of singing the same few lullabies over and over again. Here they will find a wealth of soothing simple tunes, traditional, and international, to expand their repertoire. The text of each song is accompanied by sheet music for tune recognition as well as additional verses written out for extension of the song. English translations of the international lullabies are provided, to ensure that the parent or caregiver is aware of what message he/she is singing. An index, separated both by title and by language, can be found in the back for quick page reference, an important tool for a busy teacher or parent. Part of the "First Steps in Music" series, this collection is a wonderfully useful source for infant/toddler classrooms and homes alike. Reviewer: Carly Reagan
